Abstract:

Welcome to Camden, New Jersey-one of the most economically depressed and crime-ridden cities in America. Even so, children here have hopes and dreams that compete daily with terrible hardships. This ABC News program documents the lives of three young Camden residents over the course of 18 months: six-year-old Moochie, who has vowed to get straight A's in school; Billy Joe, a teenager determined to be the first in his family to graduate from high school; and a four-year-old named Ivan with one big dream: to escape homelessness and have his own room. Through these stories, the program raises awareness of children and young people across the country who struggle daily to succeed despite near-impossible odds.
