Description

El Güero, is a story inspired by true life events. It is a story about the journey of a boy becoming a man on the streets of New York. Raised by devout, Irish Catholic parents, T-(the main character) believes he has only three life options: cop, clergy, or crook. When being a cop is not an option due to profound words from his grandfather, he chooses the clergy. Just shy of entering the Seminary, T- begins to see the human side of man in some of his mentors in the priesthood. Now with only one option left, T- El Güero, will embrace this name given to him by the Mexican underworld. A description not only endearing but defining of his distinctive notoriety. "It's almost as if this lifestyle chose me." Through constant flashbacks and moments of nostalgia, T- has to stay focused on what is in front of him, all while understanding the importance of a man's character, split-second decision making, and a strong set of governing values. In this thriller-packed story, learn how the power of one childhood prayer and complete trust in his gut will lead T- through life-threatening situations, questionable alliances, and uncharted territories. In this world you learn to never turn your back...
