Emma Thompson plays the part of an eminent High Court Judge in London presiding over ethically complex cases of family law with wisdom and compassion. At a moment of personal crisis, when her marriage is falling apart, she is asked to rule on the case of Adam, a brilliant 17-year-old boy who is refusing a life-saving blood transfusion because of his religious beliefs. She visits the boy in hospital and their meeting has a profound emotional effect on them both.
“Emma Thompson gives a wonderful performance” (Matthew Bond - Daily Mail)
