Black Jack Synopsis
In the medical profession, there’s a name spoken in hushed tones, of an unlicensed genius physician who can save lives – for a price. His name is Black Jack, and he’s a dashing, moody figure, caped in black, a Harlock of medicine, a man who lives by no rules other than his own – and the Hippocratic Oath. A man who would defy the will of God himself in the name of preserving life.
