The bonds of young friendship have never been tested like this. As kids growing up in the rough neighborhood of New York's Hell's Kitchen, four boys made a pact to stick together. However, when one of the boys sets an apartment building on fire and another takes the blame, their bonds are fractured. Now grown up, one of the boys is now a priest and the other a racketeer. Can they call upon their former friendship to put an end to violence and crime in the neighborhood? Victor McLaglen and William Gargan star in this touching melodrama from 1938.
