Waiting on the world to change poverty in Camden, New Jersey /
Moorestown, New Jersey, has been designated "the best place to live in America." Ten minutes away is Camden, the poorest city in America, also known as Murder City, USA. During a period of 18 months, Diane Sawyer follows the lives of three youngsters who are used to seeing drug deals on street corners and hearing gunfire at night. What is it like for kids to live with no electricity, rushing to finish homework before sundown? To have no food to eat before school? To sleep on the floor with roaches, grateful just to have a roof overhead? Four-year-old Ivan is homeless and hungry, but looks forward to learning to read in kindergarten. Seventeen-year-old Billy Joe is determined to graduate from high school and get an honest job to help his family. Six-year-old Moochie lives in a dysfunctional family and dreams of getting a good education. All they need is the opportunity to prove themselves.
