  • What motivates you? Money? Prestige? This will show you what one is made of.

    2 medical students spend a semester break helping a clinic in Africa(or India-I do not remember)One is very materialistic and cannot wait to get back to the party scene and the finer life in the USA(Jerry Houser-oscy from Summer of 42) While unbeknownst to him-his classmate-Ron Howard is slowly seeing what the real world of medicine and caring for people really means to most of the world. the ending is worth it-It is a transforming episode. I met Jerry Houser in Pittsburgh years ago and was able to tell him how much I appreciated this show. Excellent writing and acting-the message is a Timeless one.
