Incredibly Inspiring and Exciting
24 October 2019 | by fraydalevySee all my reviews

This film is so uplifting Uzo plays a mother who against all odds works to get her son into a school where he can thrive. the multiple dramas a work provide a suspense and humor. Still, your heart will fall as Uzo is smashed down by those who simply don't care and those who don't want her to succeed. Yet the community rallies around her and she rallies them to win out. So heartwarming to see this true story. And to know that 11,00 kids have had their lives turned around as a result of Virginia's heroism.
