Miles in the Life is a story of redemption and touches on how we can't always escape our past. It's a tale of struggle, survivial, fast cars, women, money, drugs and the darker side of the American dream. Its also about how one man aided a drug organization in becoming one of the most talked about organizations of our time and how, once released from prison, he turned his life around and become a millionaire a second time, legally. It sheds a light on why second chances are so important and why we shouldn't judge anyone by their past but by the person we see before us today.
