Some people are born under a bad sign, born outside of society, born to end up on the wrong side of the law. Born Under A Bad Sign traces the lives of three such individuals. Little Joe Dean. A hustler raised on the mean streets of New York City, who learned the in and outs of drug dealing as a young boy, who learned how to kill in the Vietnam War, who learned that raising a family comes with a price. Joyce Cassel. A young woman raised on a farm in Storm Lake, Iowa, who was sexually abused by her father, who ran away from home as a teenager, who turned to prostitution to survive. Jason Dean. The son of Little Joe and Joyce, who found himself torn between the love for his father and mother, who failed at every attempt to fit in at school, who joined a gang to find his identity.
