Storyline

British High Court Judge Fiona Maye is so involved with her cases that she hears that it often strains her marriage. But one case is of particular difficultly — that of a 17-year-old boy who is suffering from leukemia and does not want to be forced to have possible life-saving blood transfusions because it goes against his religion. The case causes internal turmoil for the wise and compassionate judge who must choose between the bright boy's right to choose and the possibility of a future.
