This was a fabulous story of a young girl forced to follow her drug-addict mother around from man to man, dealer to dealer. Mel never knew a normal life with a normal home. At least she didn't remember one. One day Mel's mom decides to take them back to her hometown to live with her mother, a grandmother Mel doesn't even remember. They are not welcomed with the warm and open, loving arms that she dreams of. Instead they end up living in the car and singing for change on the corner. One day her mom doesn't return to their spot under the bridge and the car is towed away. Local law enforcement steps in and Mel is forced to live with the grouchy and hate-filled grandmother. Eventually they grow to understand each other as they confront their shared past and hopefully their shared future.
