An Asian-American actor, living in Los Angeles, is forced to reconsider his roots as well as the possibilities afforded him by his present situation after suddenly inheriting his grandmother's home in Shanghai.
Based on a true story. Liz Murray is a young girl who is taken care of by her loving, but drug-addicted parents. Liz becomes homeless at 15 and after a tragedy comes upon her, she begins her work to finish high school.
Free-spirited Laren Sims runs away with her daughter Haylei, after skipping out on her probation for stealing and spending money using stolen credit cards. Using numerous identities, fake checks, and swiped credit cards, the duo take up roots in Sin City itself- Las Vegas. Against Haylei's wishes, Laren marries wealthy attorney Lucas, and settles down with her daughter to raise horses. But when Laren's criminal past begins to haunt her, the shocking lengths that Laren will undertake to escape it makes for a discovery of more secrets and lies that ultimately end in murder.

This movie was directed by Christian Duguay who also directed "The Art of War." I heard that this movie was "inspired by true events." Which I thought was pretty interesting! It had Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck) and Hayden Panettierre who, at a very young age, has been in a lot of movies! I found myself into the characters pretty good. At first, I liked the mom but I didn't like the fact that she lied all the time. Later on in the movie, you really kind of hated the mom who turns on her daughter and ends up lying to her as well! This is one movie that I thought was going to be awful but actually ended up being decent enough to watch! If you like a good drama, watch this one!!
