Have you seen the movie “The Pursuit of Happyness?” The movie’s overview on Google states “Life is a struggle for single father Chris Gardner (Will Smith). Evicted from their apartment, he and young son (Jaden Christopher Syre Smith) find themselves alone with no place to go. Even though Chris eventually lands a job as an intern at a prestigious brokerage firm, the position pays no money. The pair must live in shelters and endure many hardships, but Chris refuses to give into despair as he struggles to create a better life for himself and his son.”
