  • "Claireece "Precious" Jones (Gaborey Sidibe) ist ein 16-jähriges Mädchen, hineingeboren in ein Leben, das niemand führen möchte: Misshandelt von der Mutter (Mo'Nique), vergewaltigt und geschwängert vom eigenen Vater, 200 Kilo schwer, weder geliebt noch beachtet. Ausserdem kann Precious weder lesen noch schreiben. Doch hinter ihrem ungerührten Ausdruck verbirgt sich eine bemerkenswert mutige junge Frau. Die Begegnung mit der Lehrerin Miss Rain (Paula Patton) gibt ihr endlich die Chance, ihr Schicksal in die eigene Hand zu nehmen. Voller Kraft und Selbstbestimmtheit begibt sich Precious auf eine Reise von der Dunkelheit, dem Schmerz und der Machtlosigkeit zu Licht, Liebe und Selbstsicherheit."

  • ""Harlem, 1987. Claireece "Precious" Jones, adolescente obèse, s'évade dans ses rêveries pour oublier sa vie misérable. Victime depuis l'enfance des abus sexuels de son père, elle vit maintenant avec sa mère Mary, une assistée sociale toujours scotchée devant la télé, qui l'asservit et l'humilie au quotidien. Lorsque la direction de son école découvre qu'elle est enceinte d'un second enfant, l'adolescente est redirigée vers une école alternative qui met l'accent sur l'écriture. Craignant de perdre ses prestations, Mary tente furieusement d'empêcher sa fille de s'y inscrire. Mais au contact de son institutrice dévouée, d'une travailleuse sociale compréhensive et d'un infirmier attentionné, Precious trouve le sens de la parole et le courage nécessaire, à la suite de son accouchement, pour confronter sa mère."
