Storyline

In Meredith, California (a very small town) there was no doctor (only once a week on Wednesdays would a doctor fly in) , so Jesse Maloney (a "Practical Nurse") would take his place for the rest of the week. She would deliver the babies, set the bones and saved the lives of Meredith for nearly a decade. Then one day (in this "true story"), someone called the authorities and she gets arrested for practicing medicine without a license. With the strength of her convictions and overwhelming odds , she decides to fight her case in court, and has the support of the entire town. Written by Dankenman@rogers.com

A very good representation of the legal system!
11 March 2001 | by (Duncan, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

I especially enjoyed this film for several reasons. Having worked in the legal system for 6 years, I like seeing an accurate representation of how a case should be handled. Both sides have valid points. In addition, this made-for-TV movie reunited two excellent actors, Lee Remick and Albert Salmi, decades after their initial joint project, "Wild River". Together, they show young actors the way it's supposed to be done.
