All along the way, he carried an audio recorder with him. The show also hears the story of Louis, who robbed people for most of his high school career. He did it for money and for thrills. He never got caught. Then, in his senior year, he decided to stop. Louis talks to friends and family, and to himself, about why he was a criminal, and why he needs to change.
