Khailia (Halle Berry) is poor, addicted and a single-mother, who stumbling out of a crack-house forgets her baby in a box. Sanitation workers rushed the baby to hospital before she’d remembered and returned to the spot. Margaret Lewin (Jessica Lange), a social worker, helps save the baby in hospital, thanks to her insistence, and later adopts him- though the babu suffers from illnesses brought about by neglect as well as emotional and behavioral and educational problems which are related to the use of cocaine during pregnancy.

Four years later, when Khailia cleans up her act, and has a steady job, by chance she discovers that her baby is alive and with Margaret, a legal battle to the death ensues, with attorney kadar Lewis (Samuel L. Jackson) doing his best to help her reclaim her biological son, while Margaret has appointed Caroline Jones (LaTanya Richardson), as she won’t let the child go without the battle of her life…
