A 48-minute documentary that confronts long-held sterotypes by stepping inside the lives of three real women in the real world.  Follows Nancy, Simone and Gloria as they reflect on their experiences of balancing single parenthood, working life, relationships and the fulfilment of their own goals in the context of a society that is often harshly judgemental. By interweaving these intimate stories, the documentary offers a deeper understanding of the challenges, practical strategies and dreams of three resilient women and, indeed, of many black single mothers in Canada.
