A poignant comedy born of tragedy as one man's search for significance takes a roller coaster ride over forty years. A view from the passengers seat window through a life of child abuse, abandonment, growing up in juvenile homes, reform schools and jails. A road wrought with strife as well as triumph. Being thrown out of the military and two foreign countries. Arrested for crimes to include drug smuggling, bigamy, drunk driving and assaults. Becoming a World Champion to becoming homeless due to alcoholism and drug abuse. Through many failed marriages, alcohol and drug treatment centers along the way. Twelve step programs, the one step program and even the witness protection program. An awe inspiring story of a spiritual awakening.
