This movie is based on a true story about a man named Chris Gardner. Gardner has invested in a device called "Bone Density scanner". He feels like that he can achieve success from it. However, they do not sell as they are marginally better than the current technology at a much higher price. On top of that, one of these does not work. As Gardner tries to figure out on how to fix the faulty one and sell the others, his wife leaves him, he loses his house, his bank account, and credit cards. Forced to live out in the streets with his son, Gardner is now desperate to find a steady job. He is good at math and interpersonal relation. With his persistence and Jay Twistle’s help, he takes on a job as a stockbroker, but before he can receive pay, he needs to go through 6 months of training, and to sell his devices. In these 6 months, Gardner learns about the stockbroker all the time. He reads books in the dim light in the evening, on the underground, on the street. Besides learning, he has to find shelters for him and his son every afternoon. One day, they don’t find a shelter, they stay in a toilet at a subway station. Everything comes to him who waits. He beats the other 20 people and takes the job. Later he sets up his own corporation.
