Summary:
The Pact tells the gritty, provocative true story of three friends from the tough streets of Newark who made it out to become doctors but came home to be men. By high school, Sampson Davis, Rameck Hunt and George Jenkins already knew too much about the drugs, crime and grinding poverty that colored their world. They pledged to help each other make it to college and even medical school. The doctors beat the odds and returned to their community to practice medicine. Now, despite grueling workloads, they face an even more daunting task: to inspire others to stay off drugs, out of gangs, and in school.

As seen through the eyes of one boy they have touched, The Pact is a story of courage, tenacity, faith and the power of big dreams.

Special DVD features include bonus interview footage with The Three Doctors, a downloadable guide highlighting The Three Doctors' 3-D Principle, a link to The Pact Web site, and closed captions.
