Having no place to play in their run-down inner city neighborhood, twelve-year-old Arturo and the other children in his sixth-grade class decide to turn a vacant lot into a playground. At first even Arturo thinks his idea might be stupid. His brother and the other gang members in Los Vatos Locos make fun of him and some of the school officials are very skeptical. But, with their teacher's help, the children create a plan to build community support for the park. With the help of the media, they make contacts with local business leaders and, in formal presentations, convince them that this is an idea to get behind.

The story is inspired by actual events that led to Estrella Children's Park in central Los Angeles. Through the story of Arturo and his friends, No Place offers inspiration to young people everyone and practical instruction about how to take a good idea and make it a reality.
