What is that to have God-like surgical powers, yet to struggle against your own humanity? What is it like to try and save a life, and yet to fail? When British Brain Surgeon Henry Marsh first visited the KGB Hospital in Kiev in the early 1990s, patients were dying from simple brain tumors left untreated. This real-life drama follows Marsh as he openly confronts the dilemmas of the doctor patient relationship on his latest mission to the Ukraine.
