Claudine is a strong-willed single mother, raising six kids in Harlem, whose budding relationship with a gregarious garbage collector is stressed by the difficulty of getting by in an oppressive system. This romantic comedy with a social conscience deftly balances warm humor with a serious look at the myriad issues, from cycles of poverty to the indignities of the welfare system, that shape its characters' realities. The result is a bittersweet, bighearted celebration of family and community.
