Love is the key to turning the wheel of life

When I reminisce about this film, I feel very warm from the bottom of my heart, and I feel that no matter how we complain about life, it still gives us everything we want most around the corner.

Brenda has almost experienced the most unfortunate life for a woman-abandoned by love, single mother, unemployed. In the face of love, she is powerless even if she pleads hard, only in exchange for ridicule and ignorance. The man he once loved couldn't even give her an extra minute to beg when she needed it the most. She struggled to live in Chicago with three children, suffering from hunger and poverty. Until she "inexplicably" lost her job. There is no money to leave the young daughter in the care of Mrs. Mildred, no money to buy new shoes for his basketball-talented son, no money to feed the family. The helplessness in her eyes was dismissed by the unselfish people of the power company, and her heartache was covered in the boiling cry of the basketball court. She doesn't allow her sensible son to delay his studies to help her. She doesn't want him to follow her own footsteps, but only hopes to give his children a "carefree" life within her power.
While she was so unfortunate, she was also so lucky. She has an understanding son Michael, a good friend Charlie who dares to fight injustice, and also met the seemingly fierce but actually kind Mrs Mildred, and the kind bus driver Henry. They all gave Brenda the strength to support her and encourage her to be strong when she was most desperate and depressed.
Until her life was facing a desperate situation, she returned to the hometown of her father, whom she had never met, and met her "family". The affectionate Li Rui and her kind and honest daughter Cora, the big brother-like LB and his beautiful wife Sarah, the harsh Vera and the honest son Will form the interesting Brown family. It was here that Brada witnessed his father's past, attended his funeral, and even accepted his inheritance. But what benefited her the most was the growing bond with Harry and the feeling of family that Cora and Sarah made her feel.

When I returned to Chicago, life gradually began to look different. After Michael took a detour, he receded his childishness and youthful impulse and finally knew how to grow into a Real man. Brenda also gradually opened her heart. She even has her own home with the help of the Brown family. Life began to dawn gradually.

The most touching thing is actually the "love" that runs through the whole film. It is the deep mother-son love between Michael and Brenda, the pure love that is unknown and unknown from Harry, and the love that spreads in every corner that supports Brenda to stay strong. In the seemingly difficult and helpless years, it is love that lights the way forward. Brenda's strength and unshakable sense of responsibility are indeed worthy of admiration. It is such an ordinary woman who stumbles all the way to find her own happiness and brings hope to the people around her. It turns out that love is the key that turns the disk of life.

    Brenda Brown: Love me?

    Harry: Yeah. Tell Mike I said congratulations.

    Brenda Brown: Hey, what if I told you I love you too? But I got scared for a second, but I'd rather be scared and with you than be not scared and not have you.
