Plot Synopsis

Liz Murray, who is raised in severe poverty by loving, but incapable drug-addicted parents, finds herself alone and homeless at the tender age of 15. Profoundly affected by her mother's AIDS-related death, she is forced to look at the future and decides to make significant changes. Although living on the streets, she goes back to high school and eventually wins a ''New York Times'' scholarship for needy students, enabling her to attend Harvard.
