Lucky Me: The Life and Times of Lucky Cesar is the unbelievably true story of one young man’s struggle with day to day life growing up in an environment where one could only hope to see another day. 

Having witnessed horrific tragedies at an early age, his story is told with an uncompromising matter-of-factness.
