Spanning more than five years on the streets of New York City, this intimate story of survival follows Lucky Torres, a homeless mother masked in tattoos who longs to rise from a life of darkness.

Journalist Laura Checkoway makes her filmmaking debut with this powerful documentary, capturing an experience rarely depicted onscreen. Executive Producer Steve James (Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters, Life Itself) affirms,“There are not enough of these kinds of stories being told today.” Producer Neyda Martinez explains, "Lucky and her sister Fantasy's story is that of a generation with parents lost to the 1970s/1980s AIDS crisis. Forced to endure a transient upbringing without the security, safety, and support provided by responsible role models, they rely on the media to shape their dreams of success."
