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.
When there was nothing to believe in, she believed in herself.
Did You Know?
The reason that Liz Murray left Harvard was so that she could be transferred to another school, which would be less expensive than Harvard (for which she was only receiving $12,000 a year with her scholarship) and also to be closer to her father, who has since died 2006 of AIDS. See more
I loved going to school so much. You never went to school. Why would they gave you a scholarship?
Because I'm homeless and I'm doing really well on school.
You're not homeless, Liz. You could stay here.
No, I couldn't.
