Based on the award-winning book, A Chance in the World is the unbelievably true story of Steve Pemberton, a wounded and broken boy destined to become a man of resilience and vision. From the day he is five years old and dropped off at his foster home of the next eleven years, Steve (Terrell Ransom Jr.) is mentally and physically tortured by Betty (Kelly Owens/his foster mother), Willie (Lawrence-Hilton Jacobs/ her husband) and his foster siblings. Desperate for a sense of family and belonging, Steve searches for his biological parents, but no one in the system can help him. Eventually, through the help of his high-school teacher John Sykes (Tom Sizemore) and his love of literature, Steve finds that family isn’t just a biological function, it’s a choice based in love. This special event comes to cinemas nationwide on Wednesday, May 30 only, including an exclusive panel discussion broadcast live from the Paley Center in New York City with Steve Pemberton and other adoption advocates.
