Summary
  • This film follows four people suffering from brain disorders, who are undergoing groundbreaking medical treatments involving the electric stimulation of the brain. The prospect of manipulating our minds with machines has for decades been considered science fiction, but the accelerating advancements of brain sciences today are materializing into a genuine cure for the millions of people suffering from brain disorders. Each of the patients, a ten-year old born with severe epilepsy, a clinically depressed octogenarian, a photographer with bipolar disorder, and a young father who suffers from dystonia, undergoes a series of controversial treatments from electric shock therapy to invasive neurosurgery. The film raises questions about man and machines, ethics and technology, our body, and the mystery of our mind
