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.
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.
Lisa said you stopped going to school.
Liz Murray: I am going to go back.
Jean Murray: When?
Liz Murray: When you get better.
