First Daughter is the romantic comedy movie where Presidential daughter Samantha Mackenzie (Katie Holmes) enrolls in college and develops a relationship with a fellow student (Mark Blucas).

When she gets the opportunity to go away to college, she takes the opportunity to finally escape. She goes off to college, and though she is still followed by agents, she finally feels like she is leading a normal life.
