Just Like the Son
Told with equal parts eloquence and passion, the story follows twenty-year-old Daniel Carter, a petty thief performing community service at a Greenwich Village elementary school. There, he befriends eight-year-old Boone (the adorable Antonio "A.J." Ortiz). When Boone's mother is taken ill and the youth is sent away to a foster school, Daniel "rescues" him and together they set out on a road trip (funded partly by shoplifting and burglary) in which friendship, redemption and adventure are all within one's grasp.
