I do not see how this is rated less than 10 out of 10!
11 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this on NETFLIX. The summary is "This documentary examines the uphill battle that many people, including a single mother, face in chasing the American dream of home ownership."

This is more than a film about a single mother or lower inner city. This is a film about what ALL of us go through when trying to chase a goal.

This film is PERFECT for any parent with TEENAGERS (especially young women). This film is not just about home ownership, but choices, families, and timing.

I found myself COMPLETELY EMOTIONALLY INVESTED nearing the end of the film. Will she buy a home, how can the woman MARY be so SELFLESS, and what will happen with Sheree's family.

To find out the answers, well you AND your family should watch!
