Adapted from the bestselling novel Push by Sapphire, Precious tells the inspirational story of a Harlem girl whose struggle embodies America's downtrodden youth.
Pregnant by her drug-addicted father with her second child and taunted over her obesity and illiteracy by her peers, Clareece 'Precious' Jones's life is one of unimaginable trauma and heartache. But when she is invited to an alternative school by a social worker (Mariah Carey), she discovers hope in the support around her. Encouraged not tormented, she becomes determined to turn her life around.
