The film follows the real-life fortunes of Susan Tom, a Californian single mother who is currently taking care of nine of her children, all adopted and most suffering from disabilities. Over the course of a single year, dramatic events include a rare visit from Susan\'s parents and the increasingly worrying behaviour of Joe, a fifteen-year-old who suffers from both cystic fibrosis and attention deficit disorder.
