|I Am Woman: Helen Reddy arrives in New York with her three-year-old daughter, a suitcase and $230 in her pocket. She had been told she'd won a recording contract, but the
record company promptly dashes her hopes by telling her it has enough female stars and suggests she has fun in New York before returning home to Australia. Helen,
without a visa, decides to stay in New York anyway and pursue a singing career, struggling to make ends meet and provide for her daughter.
