Summary An inside look at the emotional and spiritual struggles and joys of an extraordinary priest called to serve in one of Philadelphia's toughest neighborhoods. Faced with gangs, poverty, drugs and an often felt feeling of hopelessness, Father Mac, is a tireless crusader, handing out food to the poor, interceding with colleges on behalf of promising students, and occasionally bailing out neighborhood kids from night court.
