Gracie Thompson is a street urchin-like young lady who has to pick up the slack of her addict mother. She becomes the head of household (along with her grandma) for her four younger half siblings while her mother jumps from one toxic relationship to the next and does a stint in jail. After beginning a new relationship, finding advocates in the school staff and taking on a job, Gracie begins to find some stability in her life, but when her mother shows back up and browbeats her grandma into giving up the caretaker funds, Gracie sues for her emancipation and caretaking rights for her brothers (her sister gets pregnant and moves in with her boyfriend) and begins life balancing a relationship, the needs of young children, her job – she gets promoted! – and school. Somehow she manages to do it and in the end battles it out in court to formally adopt her brothers. With her mother’s parental rights revoked, the judge grants Gracie the adoption of her brothers. They walk out of the court with each other and a new last name: the Weatherlys. Because they’ve weathered a lot of storms together.
