Faith Parker initially thinks that her son, Hunter, is deaf, because he is two years old and has not uttered a single word. Her dearest friend and confidant, Frank, advises her to seek professional help for Hunter. So, during the summer, Faith painstakingly meets with professionals to discuss Hunter's diagnosis and to collect the proper documentation.

Fired from her administrative position, Faith haphazardly finds temporary employment as a carpenter's assistant, a dog walker, and she even tries to be a landlord.

The evaluation from professionals concludes that Hunter is in the autism spectrum.

Overwhelmed by the diagnosis, angered by the dog walker, and distressed by her roommate, Faith searches for Hunter's biological father. Unfortunately, he is in a supervised time out.

How will she deal with Hunter's disability? Can she find the right school for him? Crowd Pleaser explores the challenges that Faith must face to insure the best possible future for her and her son!
