This film is about a young African American boy, Michael Oher, who gets abandoned from his drug-abused mother. Based upon a true story, Oher was left stranded and homeless until an American family took him in. With the help of that family, he got access to a roof over his head and a plate of food. From that point, that family changed his entire life. He got the chance to be enrolled in a private school which led him to playing on the high school football game. His new family helped him pursue the football career; getting a scholarship and being drafting in the NFL. Of course there were complications throughout the way such as being adopted into an American family, leaving the poverty community, meeting his grade requirements, and being drafted in the NFL. People doubted him because he was a random African American boy who came into the "rich" community. Towards the end of the film, there were investigators who began to question him and his new family and why they wanted him to become a football all-star at a particular college that the family had history with. In the end, Oher got what he wanted and made his decision without being pressured from others around him. This movie was more about the way people view two different communities with family, love, and support rather than actual sport itself.
