Synopsis

That's how things go in the `hood: It's a never ending cycle of trouble, and once it grabs you, it won't let go.



Patricia started life on the lowest rung of society: poor, black, and female. With an alcoholic for a mother and four siblings, she was raised on a steady diet of welfare, food stamps and cigarette smoke. By the age of 15 she had two children, and by the age of 16 she was dealing drugs to support her young family. Growing up in a family that had been stuck in the ghetto for generations, it seemed impossible Patricia would ever escape.



But when she was shot be a rival drug dealer in front her own children, Patricia made the life-changing decision to turn it all around. With a combination of grit, stubbornness, anger and love - and the kindness of others - she fought to break the cycle of poverty for the next generation. Now a stand-up comedian performing as Ms. Pat, she lives the maxim that the best healing comes through humour.

Patricia Williams was born in Atlanta, into a family that had been stuck in the ghetto for generations. After numerous run-ins with the law and a prison stint, she decided to turn her life around. As Ms. Pat, she now has a successful comedy career, and lives in Indianapolis with her husband and four children.
