Eric Cooper is in charge of the San Antonio Food Bank. When his father left his mother and the family, Eric stepped in as a breadwinner. With each check he wrote, each bill he helped pay, he resented his father a little more. Finally, he felt he had to confront the man who had left such a tremendous burden behind. His story is about family, and how it makes us who we are, whether we like it or not.
