Stockton, California, is considered one of the worst cities in the United States, riddled with financial crisis and crime rates rivaling Afghanistan. Where everyone else saw hopelessness, 22-year-old Michael Tubbs saw possibility. In 2012, Tubbs ran for City Council, building his campaign from the ground up. TRUE SON tells the passionate and inspirational story as Tubbs sets out to beat a politician twice his age and bring his community back from bankruptcy.
