Why does someone get involved in the criminal world? What makes someone interested in joining a motorcycle gang known for brutal activity? We tell the story of one man who was let down by the Quebec foster care system growing up, and followed his anger down a very dark path. He looks back on his days in the Mongols Motorcycle Club, as he struggles to create a new life on the other side.
