of Hope Street" is a very touching movie. The heroine, Alicia, goes through
hell and back: civil war at home, her parents killed, she and her little brother
live with a drug-addicted aunt in L.A. When authorities notice that Alicia
obviously gets beaten a lot, the children are brought to different foster homes.
The separation from her brother is hard on Alicia, but the horror is far from
over... She overcomes all obstacles, though, with the help of some friends. She
is a remarkable person - and what's even more remarkable, the movie is based on
a true story. Things like that happen every day.
