Worked in d school to earn some money for the laundry and walks miles miles in the cold to go the school back again because it is warm there in d gym.

Big Mike starts being in good terms with the “Touhy” family and accompanies them to the Thanksgiving dinner he never had a proper family to have a dinner like that with. He starts playing Football (American Football) for the school impressing the coach by his size and strength and also by listening to what Leigh Anne (Sandra Bullock) says.
His sporting career takes a jump but he still lacks in his studies a private tutor used to teach him he is then legally adopted by Leigh Anne (Sandra Bullock) by much research.
The movie is about his journey from nowhere to somewhere from no family to a settled rich family from rags to riches. Truly an inspirational movie. Impressive acting by Quinton Aaron and Sandra Bullock no overacting like the bolly heroes.
