Three young black men from one of the toughest neighborhoods in the country grow up on a track to follow just about everybody around them: straight to jail. But something happens - they find faith in one another, and together, they beat the odds. They become doctors, and they choose to work in the community where they grew up - mostly, they say, to be role models for young people in the community. By now, the story of Drs. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt is well known to teenagers and adults who have read their best-selling book The Pact. Last night, the documentary about their lives and their mission premiered at the Cleveland International Film Festival. The film was directed by Andrea Kalin, who joined ideastream's Dan Moulthrop in Studio 4 at the Idea Center.
