True Red is a harsh but courageous story of one man’s journey from debauchery to redemption. “ ...coming out of the Mongrel Mob gang was a hard ask. Sometimes I felt suffocated by the public’s labels a leopard never changes its spots; once a gang member always a gang member — and those sentiments bound me to the curse of the ‘‘dog’. How was I ever going to move myself out of deprivation and paint myself on to a new canvas? I lived a life of extremes and it was going to take another ‘extreme’ to replace it ”
