Maybe Napoleon has a good reason for being so bitter.  He is a Filipino-Australian teen living on the streets of Sydney.  He believes that all adults are "evil, cruel, hypocritical, shallow, boring, brain-dead, fat, ugly, noneyeffing, nauseating, fascist oink-oinks!"  That about says it all and explains why he seems so angry.  And why he has turned to drugs to ease his pain.  But what could possibly have happened in his life to get him to this point?  And, is there any hope for him?
