A twenty-year-old, Thaddeus Adams, is looking back to when he was a self-described “nerd” who stood up to a brutal bully, Earl Jacobson. The bully is gang affiliated and heartless, and he adds layers of difficulties to Thaddeus’ life that no teen should have to endure. The challenges require strategic planning which shears off layers of Thaddeus’ nerd qualities.
