Based on the award-winning book, A Chance in the World is the unbelievably true story of Steve Pemberton, a wounded and broken boy destined to become a man of resilience and vision. From the day he is five-years-old and dropped off at his foster home of the next eleven years, Steve (Terrell Ransom Jr.) is mentally and physically tortured by Betty (Kelly Owens/his foster mother), Willie (Lawrence-Hilton Jacobs/ her husband) and his foster siblings. Desperate for a sense of family and belonging, Steve searches for his biological parents, but no one in the system can help him. Eventually, through the help of his high-school teacher John Sykes (Tom Sizemore) and his love of literature, Steve finds that family isn't just a biological function, it's a choice based in love.
