Neurologist Oliver Sacks helped redefine what we know about the brain through his groundbreaking work with comatose patients and best-selling books like Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. Based on a series of interviews filmed shortly after his terminal cancer diagnosis, this revealing documentary finds Sacks reflecting on his storied career and opening up about his sometimes troubled personal life.
