Storyline

In an effort to understand the plight of homeless women living on the streets, young social worker, Carrie Lange (Daphne Zuniga) attempts befriending a homeless woman named Florabelle ('Lucille Ball'). Florabelle believes Carrie is runaway and tells her to go to the homeless shelter for help. Carrie stops another woman from stealing Florabelle's cart and gains her dubious trust. So begins Carrie's education in survival on the streets of Manhattan. Florabelle begins to teach Carrie street survival skills such as when threatened act crazy-the crazier the better, drinking vinegar to toughen the feet and innards, which garbage cans are good to go through for food, and where to find places to sleep and for warmth. This movie makes an effort to investigate the plight of the homeless and what avenues can be taken to help them to help themselves. Written by tonileigh58@yahoo.com

Great Drama by Lucille Ball
16 March 2003 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

I think our Lucy gave one of her best in this film. She is always one who was never afraid to look ugly (on film, anyway). She is just great and I am so sorry that the rest of the cast is under par and never really matches her power as a performer. I was able to view it at the Museum of Television and Radio and I highly recommend it for any one who is a fan of the first lady of television.
