Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Contract for Life: The S.A.D.D. Story was originally produced as an ABC Schoolbreak Special. The titular acronym stands for Students Against Drunk Driving, an organization spearheaded by hockey coach Bob Anastas. Stephen Macht plays Anastas in this re-enactment of the tragic events leading up to the formation of S.A.D.D. When two of his best players are killed in an alcohol-related car accident, Anastas rallies the rest of the team-and the rest of the school--to join hands in preventing future gas-and-alcohol mixtures. Central to the S.A.D.D. creed is the signing of an agreement promising never to drink and drive, not only during the high school years, but for the rest of one's life. The 46-minute Contract for Life was directed by Hollywood veteran Joseph Pevney.
