Description
"I loved this movie. I can't remember when I have loved a movie quite as much as this one."--USA Today.
"A fine feature debut...while the politics are there you might be too busy choking back tears to notice."--New York Times.
"Wonderful...absorbing and deftly played."--Los Angeles Times.
After being evicted, hardworking single mom Elaine Cheng tries to maintain a normal life for her children, Raymond and Tina. They squat in a Boston apartment as Elaine juggles a number of jobs, including working for a questionable pyramid scheme. When Elaine doesn't return home one night, nobody knows the kids are home alone, and they are left to fend for themselves. Raymond, a budding inventor, realizes he needs to come up with a plan to take care of his little sister.
