It’s 1994, and Inez, a New York City hairdresser and convicted thief, meets her young son Terry again, a downtrodden six-year-old struggling with being in the foster care system. Upset and determined to start afresh, Inez sneaks Terry away. Over the following years, she has to work hard and falsify documents to keep her little boy from falling into the hands of social services. Inez marries Lucky, a strong father figure to Terry, who begins to really thrive in school. But the city can be a cruel and ever-changing place marked by pain and hardship as well as beauty, and as Terry’s academic talent opens more doors to him, he uncovers truths he never expected. A powerful drama that celebrates the fierce bonds of family and the spirit of flawed individuals who persevere in the face of systemic inequity.
