In the early 1980's, Christopher Gardener suffers a financial collapse that leads to the demise of his family. He loses almost everything: wife, house, and all of his bank accounts. But, the one thing he does not lose is his small son, Christopher, to whom he is completely committed and devoted. Chris takes an internship on Wall Street all while living with Christopher on the streets. Gardener excels in his internship in stark contrast to his homelessness and extreme poverty.
