Diego has gotten into trouble because of his temper before. But when he punches out a guy in school who was looking at him funny, he finds himself in juvenile court, facing the possibility of probation, or worse--juvenile jail. Mr. Vidas is assigned as his probation officer, but Diego doesn't trust or like him. However, he doesn't have a choice--he has to talk to Mr. Vidas, or he'll find himself in worse trouble. It's only when Diego starts to open up to Mr. Vidas that he begins to understand that the source of his anger is buried in his past--and to move beyond it, he needs to stop running from his personal demons.
