Chris Gardner is an intelligent, energetic guy who can't catch a break. In the sluggish Bay Area economy of 1981, he's losing ground, by investing all his family's money in high cost bone-density scanners. His wife leaves him, he loses his apartment, and with his 5-year-old son in tow joins the ranks of the homeless, if not the hopeless. Bounced from shelter to shelter, he finds himself a single dad who has to support and care for a young child. Impressing a Dean Witter higher-up by solving a Rubik's cube during a taxi ride, Chris gets a place in a stockbroker-training program.

San Francisco, 1981. Chris Gardner è un rappresentante di scanner portatili per misurare la densità ossea. Gli affari non vanno bene e Chris ha notevoli problemi finanziari che provocano continue tensioni in famiglia con la moglie, costretta a fare i doppi turni per equilibrare un bilancio familiare sempre più in rosso. Chris tenta di cambiare vita e si iscrive ad un corso per broker. Riesce a contattare Jay Twistle, il capo della Dean Witter, la società che dovrebbe scegliere gli stagisti per farli partecipare al corso, ma nello stesso momento in cui il dirigente lo contatta telefonicamente, la moglie lo abbandona portandosi via il figlio Christopher, stanca dei continui insuccessi del marito. La situazione precipita: il padrone di casa pretende l’affitto arretrato e non avendolo ricevuto lo sfratta; la polizia lo convoca per riscuotere le multe non pagate e, per verificare che l’assegno staccato sia coperto, lo trattiene una notte in prigione. Giunto comunque in tempo al colloquio, nonostante gli abiti sdruciti e sporchi, Chris ottiene il posto: la situazione apparentemente non migliora, perché Chris durante lo stage non percepirà lo stipendio. La moglie decide di trasferirsi a New York, lasciando Christopher al padre. Lo stage inizia, e dopo alcuni giorni di rodaggio, Chris inizia ad ingranare. Ma l’illusione è di breve durata, perché il Governo prende dal conto in banca di Chris la cifra spettante per non avere pagato precedentemente le tasse. Chris è sul lastrico. Cerca di raggranellare qualche soldo vendendo gli ultimi esemplari di scanner, ma anche il proprietario del motel in cui si è trasferito lo sfratta. Costretto a girovagare con il figlio, Chris trova ospitalità in una casa di carità, nella quale bisogna fare la coda ogni giorno per garantirsi il posto per la notte. Ciò nonostante, riesce a sostenere l’esame che sancisce il termine del periodo di stage. Stremato anche nell’ottimismo, Chris è convocato dalla dirigenza della Dean Witter che gli comunica l’auspicata notizia dell’assunzione
