The Blind Side sees a homeless black teen Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), who has drifted in and out of the school system for years.

Then both Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock) and her husband, Sean (Tim McGraw), spot him walking down the road in shorts on a wet cold windy night and decide to take him in.

The Tuohys eventually become Michael's legal guardians, transforming both his life and theirs. Michael's protective instincts together wis his obvious size makes him a formidable force in the game American Football

With help from the Tuohys and his devoted tutor Miss Sue (Kathy Bates), he realises his true potential as a student and football player. The film does not really show what he achieved on the Athletics field and on the basketball court .
