Welcoming refugees from Burma, escaping the control of a communist dictator, or recounting the details of a former life of crime...all of this might sound like the stuff of Hollywood movies. However, for Larry Elliston this is just the type of inspiration that helps him to create the unique personal portraits that are Florida Stories. Over the past few months Larry has introduced us to many interesting people living in and around the Bay area. In this episode we're revisiting some of Larry's favorite moments as featured during the Florida Matters TV series.
