Based on the memoirs of Yvonne S. Thornton, this heartwarming, inspirational family drama centers on a poor black laborer who wanted his six daughters to grow up to be doctors. With a determination bordering on obsession, he demands much of his girls, something they don't always appreciate. He also makes many personal sacrifices to make sure they will succeed in life.
