Product Description:

In this made-for-TV movie from the Lifetime Channel, Rosie O'Donnell stars as Dr. Maureen Brennan, a child psychiatrist who helps a 16-year-old boy named America (Philip Johnson) overcome years of childhood trauma, including growing up with a crack-addicted mother and being shuffled through a series of foster homes. The teleplay is based on a novel by E.R. Frank, who used her real-life experiences as a social worker as the basis for this tragic but ultimately hopeful story of transformative healing.

Product Description:

Rosie O'Donnell gives an inspired performance in a dramatic and enlightening story about the plight of this country's forgotten youth. America (newcomer Philip Johnson), a 16-year-old biracial boy, seems like just another statistic from a broken foster care system when he arrives in a residential treatment facility where psychiatrist Dr. Maureen Brennan (O'Donnell) works. Through a series of confrontational sessions, Dr. Brennan helps America find the one thing missing from his entire life: hope. Co-starring acclaimed actress Ruby Dee, AMERICA is a powerful and provocative journey that will stay with you forever.
