Description
Introducing Socrates Fortlow, an ex-con struggling to find his place in the world after 27 years in jail. Living in an abandoned apartment building in South-Central L.A., Socrates is one step away from the streets. He bags groceries at the supermarket, recycles bottles and cans for pennies, and feels himself slipping toward invisibility—until he meets 11-year-old Darryl, who is perilously close to a life of violence and bloodshed. Socrates' determination to fight for and save Darryl lights his own pathway to self-forgiveness and possible redemption.

A lyrical and deeply moving work—read by Peter Francis James who perfectly captures Socrates' struggles—Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned provides an unflinching look into inner city life and the soul of one man who refuses to succumb to the despair around him.
