I have seen this film on dvd, it is great,great. It shows a how a black
single mother endures through hard times
and becomes a fixture to help others,to help them deals with probelms in their lives.
Not for everyone, I suppose. But it's an excellent movie and deserves to be watched. Some great acting and some powerful scenes.
A must see for blacks! It shows how a community of blacks came together to finally make things better instead of continously tearing each other down
