Come What May (DVD)
Patrick Henry College and the Advent Film Group team up in a new film presenting arguments that one day could be used to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that found a right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution.
In the movie, Caleb, a Christian student attending Patrick Henry, is caught in a moral tug-of-war as he challenges Roe v. Wade at the National Moot Court Championship. Can he win the heart of Rachel, who is arguing for pro-life? At the same time, the character's mother, a feminist attorney, argues the case at the U.S. Supreme Court, but on the opposing side. Caught in a whirlwind of moral and social discord, Caleb must determine what he really believes.
This film is appropriate for the whole family.

About the College
Patrick Henry College is the setting for "Come What May," the first movie from Advent Film Group. The college plays an important role in the film from the beginning, as Caleb Hogan has to convince his doubting mother that PHC is the best place for him to earn his undergraduate degree. Caleb's hope is to be a lawyer like his mother, and his research has shown PHC to be a great training ground, especially when it comes to its Moot Court (or legal debate) team.
Dr. Michael Farris, founder, chancellor and coach of the PHC championship moot court program, plays himself in the movie. The college is well represented in the crew as well, with a number of students participating in the filming.
