Every character brought in something versatile to the story. They were very unique, raw and real which we all see in real life and maybe ignore them. It's a story of an alcoholic woman and the sad lives of her three children. The sad and gritty lives of her children Leek, Catherine and Shuggie brings into foray their struggles, loneliness and their fight to make something better out of their lives. Shuggie Bain tries to be devoted to his mother with the hope that she would be on her feet again, fight against her addiction to alcoholism, and lead a better life. When everyone has given up on her, Shuggie stays on with her with a strong ray of hope, that his mother would fight and one day is normal.
