Ten-year-old Chrissy lives on the rough side of town in deplorable conditions with her two siblings and their sick, bedridden mother. Chrissy becomes a target for teasing and discrimination from her fellow students at Redemption Primary. She then meets a new student at her school, Melissa, who is rich, and begins an unexpected friendship. Will Chrissy ride this gift horse to the top? Or will her intellect be enough to help elevate her and her family out of their poverty-stricken life?

Chrissy! (2012)
