About The Film

TRUE SON follows 22-year old Stanford graduate Michael Tubbs and his campaign to win a seat on Stockton, CA City Council during a year of record homicides and impending bankruptcy. Born to a teenage mother and incarcerated father, Michael returns home in a remarkable election campaign that galvanizes the youth of the city to reinvent Stockton. Michael is now the Mayor of Stockton.

The film premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, and was sold to FusionTV/Univision later that year.
