11 y/o Izzy, feels the world is closing in on him when his dad suffers a stroke and his mom is overwhelmed by insurance problems and a lousy paycheck while struggling to raise three children in a cramped New York tenement.

I enjoyed this movie from start to finish. I really felt for Izzy and the whole family. It was a bad situation all the way around.

Very depressing film with odd unrelated second and third story lines that break into the main narrative and dilute it.
