This is a dramatization of a true story and real persons who shall remain anonymous.



The story opens in the Detroit ghetto in the early fifties with 7-year-old Sampson running for his life. A brutal gang beats him up, holds him upside down, and shakes a few pennies out of his jeans. They drop him on the ground and run away. Young Sampson is seriously hurt and cries out for his father. Sampson limps home confused and tearful. His father's paint cans stacked by the door signal that his gambling father is at home, for once.
