Abstract:

"Lucky is [a] candid portrait of a young Puerto Rican woman, a single mother, homeless, and struggling to find work, yet still passionately dreaming of true love and success. Journalist Laura Checkoway spent more than six years following Lucky ... Lucky Torres masks a lifetime of abuse and abandonment behind an angry, tattooed exterior. Growing up in foster care, Lucky and her sister Fantasy have struggled with stability all their lives. While her sister has settled down, Lucky still hasn't found her way. The film accompanies Lucky as she tries to make her way through the rough and unforgiving streets of New York City, hustling the system to keep afloat. Moving from shelter to shelter, Lucky struggles to provide for herself and her young son. With no safety net, Lucky has managed to survive a generation lost to drugs, AIDS and urban blight. She is a proud lesbian and carries this with her through the many bigger struggles that she faces. Through her story, myriad social issues come ... to light, such as the flaws of foster care and social services, systemic poverty, urban blight, LGBT discrimination and homelessness."--Container.
