Based on the true story of Leigh Anne Tuohy and Sean Tuohy who take in a homeless teenage African-American, Michael Oher. Michael has no idea who his father is and his mother is a drug addict.

When he expresses an interest in football, she goes all out to help him, including giving the coach a few ideas on how best to use Michael's skills.
