Summary
In the hills of Central Appalachia, up winding, mountain roads, is a place where families face unthinkable living conditions. Isolated pockets here have three times the national poverty rate, an epidemic of drug abuse, and the shortest life span in the nation. In this program, Diane Sawyer travels to the Appalachian Mountains to report on children who live in rural poverty, and in particular, four who are determined to find a better life. For nearly two years, ABC News cameras have followed the stories of Shawn, a high school athlete who sleeps in his truck to avoid his alcoholic family; Courtney, a 12-year-old who wants nothing more than her own bed and enough to eat; Jeremy, an 18-year-old coal miner whose dream of becoming an engineer was dashed when his girlfriend became pregnant; and Erica, an 11-year-old striving to save her addicted mother's life. The program also includes Sawyer's update on these four young people, and a discussion of possible solutions to poverty
