It was a crime against humanity... but one woman refused to let it die. Featuring committed performances from its stars, For Their Own Good tells the moving true story of one woman's courageous fight to correct a terrible injustice and force a much-needed change in the law. In 1984, a ruthless corporation based in a Texas town made a humiliating demand of its female workforce: they must choose between children – or their jobs. Because the toxic substances that the women handled in the course of their work might cause defects in an unborn child, the corporation ordered... them to undergo compulsory sterilisation or lose their jobs. This is the true story of a crime almost beyond comprehension and the story of Sally Wheeler (Elizabeth Perkins - Big, Finding Nemo), a woman desperate to have another child, who refused to let her anger die and endured both public humiliation and private heartache in her unrelenting fight for justice. Made by the producers of the hit feature film Fried Green Tomatoes, For Their Own Good also stars Laura San Giacomo (Sex, Lies and Videotape, Pretty Woman) and Charles Haid (Hill Street Blues). It is written and directed by Ed Kaplan (My First Love, Walking on Air, Dear God). [show more]
