NIce to have This Film For Teenagers

Federal Case was shot on the Texas Mexico border almost ten years ago yet the film still holds up to today's standards. What happens when teenagers view life differently than their parents. What happens when a parent is telling a pregnant teen to end it but the teen is committed to keeping the life growing within. All these subjects are handling in a great dramatic fashion. The footage from Mexico is exciting and authentic. The movie has the gritty Texas look we have all come to love.
