When Michael Oher, a homeless and tramautized black boy, is adopted into a caring white family, there is a large growing pain experienced by both parties. Leigh Tuohy, Michael's adoptive mother, is appalled and disheartened by the prejudice expressed by her friend circle against him. She rebukes them and distances herself from them for their views. Her daughter, Collins, arrives to a similar perspective and chooses to study with Michael over her friends.
