Chris Gardner (Will Smith) is a freelance salesman marketing the most useless product you could ever try to sale.
In this film, he has a son, Christopher ( in real life he is Thandie Newton Smith who happens to be Will Smith’s real son) and a wife, Linda ( in real life she is Jaden Smith who Will Smith’s real wife). Imagine the whole real family are casts!
Life turned out for the worst as Chris began to face problems with his job and couldn’t look after the family.
Worse comes to worst when Linda could not take it any longer and left him. That makes them two; the father and the son.
What is so touching about this movie is how Chris had tried his best to protect his son and hold the family together by being positive about the future.
He pursued happiness until he became successful because he did not give up.
