Summary
The story of one remarkable doctor as he transforms the standards of care for paraplegics. Arriving at England's Stoke Mandeville Hospital in 1944, Doctor Ludwig Guttmann reinvigorates the lives of his staff and patients with one daring move: he introduces athletics into the rehabilitation plan of his patients, paralyzed soldiers who have been cast-off and are facing death from neglect. Using sports, his patients learn to build not only physical strength, but self-respect and a sense of fulfillment. This film tells the true story of the Paralympic Games as well as celebrating the work of Dr. Guttmann, who started it all
