The film is adapted from the memoir of the same name by J.D. Vance and tells the author’s own experience of struggling from the bottom of society.

However, it is such an inspirational novel that has encountered huge controversy in the United States.
Many people believe that the author Vance is whitewashing and overcorrecting, because the residents of the Appalachian Mountains have no ability to change their own living conditions.
