"Extra, extra, read all about it, the 'Morning Star' is the paper, a dime for the news." The boy in tattered clothing yells as he holds up the headline. It's 1959 and Jimmy's in New York's Times Square. As the son of poor Irish immigrants, Jimmy sells the morning paper and delivers the afternoon edition. He soon realizes that he has nothing to lose in this world, except his mum.
