I CAN'T BREATHE: A Modern-Day Story of Job is based on the true story of Thomas Laresca. Laresca lived an average life in a quiet American town: a good job as a stock trader, a wife, a family, a beautiful home. Then in 1998, his life changed. While living in Boca Raton, Florida, Laresca was wrongly arrested and abused by the police.
This experience was the beginning of many adversities Laresca suffered. He lost his job, family and even was diagnosed with terminal cancer. But through it all, Laresca looked upward and onward.
