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

Would LOVE to find this movie on VHS or DVD
11 November 2003 | by (Gaylord,Mi) – See all my reviews

I only saw this movie once,when it first was broadcast. I would absolutely love to own a video of this movie,it is such a departure of what you expect of Lucille Ball. I cried when I saw this movie and waited forever to see it again.
