Riveting courtroom drama featuring an attorney, who for all intent and purpose had given up his career. But the case of a young woman who went into the catholic hospital to have a baby and came out a vegetable, was one that Galvin couldn't turn his back on. Going up against the Catholic Church, charging the Catholic hospital with negligence and a fifteen million dollar suit, just might be his last.
