Hadley is a large city with people residing in it with little money. These people are forced to live their lives in fear, poor health, depression, and discomfort. It's a rough life for the residents, and these five families are no different. Will the Chambers family make it out of this place alive? Can the Rosales make their dream home out of this horrid place? Will the Williams family be able to own a business here? Can the Taylor family live supporting themselves and the Darnbroughs?
