It tells the personal account of a person whose criminal history stemmed from a string of incidents that caused him to petition to have his SOPO cancelled. He was convicted of a downloading offence for which he received both an indeterminate SOPO and a community sentence. He attempted to reconstruct his life in the years that followed his sentence, but he was up against a lot of obstacles. Due to these difficulties, he made the decision to petition to have his SOPO cancelled and eventually was successful. Overall, he shows how SOPOs might be overreacting, overly emotional, and challenged, but giving up should never be an option.
