Excellent drama about a group of women living in an apartment building. This explores all their lives and shows how everyone is struggling through something. jackee comes out the best! This movie is dramatic, hilarious and heartbreaking. Such lines as "You shoulda thoughta that before you started breeding em like roaches!" and Jackee's one liners during the tenants meeting had me laughing out loud. Highly recommended!!!!!!
