When the mayor's 17 year old daughter gets pregnant, Dr. Jacob is called to abort the child. But, anti-abortionist Reverend Thomas will not allow the murder of this unborn child who has been fathered by his own nephew - and will go to any extent to save the life of this baby, even if the mayor sets it up as a federal case.Written by
It would be hard to find a better film for teenagers than Federal Case. It is important to empower teens and allow them to take the steps necessary to grow into responsible adults. When the main character finds herself forced to commit a deed so heinous and vile that it nearly rends her powerless she finds companionship that allows her to escape a dreadful future instead striking out on her own and growing in the process. Federal case has excellent actors and with a bevy of awards under its belt it is easy to see why it is an audience favorite.
