Filmmaker Daniela Zanzotto follows the remarkable story of Daniel, a former drug dealer from the Bronx who had fathered a son, seen his mother get arrested, and witnessed two of his brothers get thrown in jail by age fifteen, yet miraculously managed to become the first member of his family to graduate high school before ultimately getting accepted into an Ivy League university.
His family having hit a low-point when Daniel was just sixteen, his mother relocated the family from North Carolina to the South Bronx. Once there, Daniel enrolled in Taft High School, where he quickly began to excel in his studies.
While understandably optimistic about his future after being accepted into an Ivy League University, however, Daniel found that adjusting both socially and academically to his new environment was much more difficult than he anticipated.
