Mike Muñoz, a 22-year-old Chicano man and an aspiring landscape artist, is desperately trying to get footing in a world that doesn’t seem to be able to see beyond his name and his skin color. Though he’s still young, Mike is starting to despair of ever realizing his dreams of establishing a career that is both meaningful and financially rewarding. He keeps bumping up against the realities of his limited education and the undeniable truth that for most people—white people—he might be fine as a lawn boy, but in their eyes there is no next step. Determined to find a way out of the hole he was born in and has only made deeper through his own mistakes, Mike sets out to make the world aware that he exists.
