He entered this world when his single mother gave birth to him in a prison. His early life saw him passed around foster families where he was mistreated and abused. But Antwone’s story is one that leads to a Hollywood movie about his life and sees him now work as a screenwriter, poet, lecturer, best-selling author and children's rights advocate.
