That aside, Cyrilís life isnít too different from that of other thirteen-year-olds. He has all the usual adolescent issues to deal with: parent problems, self-esteem problems, skin, hair and girl problems. He just has legal problems too. And heís got to solve them if he wants to save his motherís life.
