(mbc.net) When one family realizes the needs of a homeless African-American boy, it soon proves that perhaps a little care and attention is all we need to succeed against our odds in life.

This is the true story of how Leigh Anne (Sandra Bullock) and her husband Sean Tuohy (Tim McGraw) took in Michael 'Big Mike' Oher (played by Quinton Aaron), nurtured him, until he qualified for an NCAA Division I athletic scholarship.

Even as their friends and neighbors started to criticize Leigh's concern for Michael, that only spurred her belief in Michael's inherent talent.

Later, Michael Oher was the first-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in the 2009 NFL draft.
