The Pact                        (92 min)

'The Pact' is a documentary film and community outreach
project centered on the raw, powerful and ultimately
inspiring journey of the authors of The Pact: Three Young
Men Make a Promise and Fulfill a Dream, a NY Times
bestseller. ‘The Pact’ is a powerful, feature-length
documentary on the lives of three African-American men
from inner-city Newark, New Jersey, who vowed to become
doctors and against all odds succeeded. A gritty and
provocative true-life tale, ‘The Pact’ chronicles the Three
Doctors as they fight to spread the word to inspire other
inner-city children to stay out of gangs and use education
to escape from their urban nightmare. As they navigate the
minefields of their community work, struggle with exhausting
shifts at the hospital, and wrestle with their own painful
childhood memories, ‘The Pact’ speaks not only to the
crisis of inner-city America, but to the power of the
individual to make a difference.
