Set in Harlem in 1987, Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire is the story of Claireece "Precious" Jones, a sixteen year old African-American girl born into a life no one would want. She's pregnant for the second time by her absent father; at home, she must wait hand and foot on her mother, a poisonously angry woman who abuses her emotionally and physically. School is a place of chaos, and Precious has reached the ninth grade with good marks and an awful secret: she can neither read nor write.
