Joy || In 1990, Joy Mangano, an airline booking agent residing in Peconic, New York, struggles financially while juggling a complicated family life. Living with Joy and her two children are her single mother, Terri, who spends all day in bed watching soap operas, her maternal grandmother, Mimi, and her under-employed ex-husband, Tony, a wannabe singer who sleeps in the basement. Her overachieving paternal half-sister, Peggy, constantly humiliates Joy in front of her children for her failed marriage. Joy’s father, Rudy, further complicates matters when he also moves into the basement after his third divorce.
Mimi and Joy’s best friend, Jackie, encourage Her to pursue her inventing ambitions. Frustrated when using a conventional mop, Joy designs and builds an innovative self-wringing type. Trudy, a wealthy Italian widow Rudy is dating, agrees to invest in Joy’s product. They contract with a California company to manufacture the mop’s parts at a low price. After That To avoid a potential patent lawsuit, the company advises Her to pay $50,000 in royalties to a man in Hong Kong who has a similar product. When the manufacturer repeatedly bills Joy to remake their faulty parts, She refuses to pay.
However Joy meets QVC executive Neil Walker who agrees to sell her mops on TV. To manufacture 50,000 additional units, She takes out a second home mortgage. When the first TV attempt fails after the celebrity pitchman improperly demonstrates the product, She demands she be allowed to do a second infomercial. Therefore mop sells out, earning thousands of dollars; Joy’s success is soon tempered by Mimi’s sudden death.
