• VIEW STORY: Misty and dale: It's all for the kids •

These are the battlers from Trailer 25. Misty Jennings and Dale Buchanan share the home with their daughter 18 month old daughter Samantha and Misty's three other children; Kayla, 5, Chris, 7, and Amy, 9.

Money's tight because Misty's income from her night job at the rest home doesn't pay much. Dale is out of work so stays home and looks after the kids when Misty isn't around.

The trailer park they live in was an old Japanese POW camp, and perhaps there are still prisoners in this place. Will the children transcend the situation they are in through education or will circumstances keep them from moving on to better things?

Misty and Dale love the kids, and in the children's eyes Dale and Misty are heroes-as all our parents are when we are young. Maybe the family's predicament won't improve, but everyone is trying.
