Overview

This documentary by Geoffrey Smith tells the inspiring story of British neurosurgeon Henry Marsh, who turned the run-down remains of a Ukrainian hospital into a working surgery center. When Marsh visited the Kiev hospital in the 1990s, he was aghast at the deplorable conditions of both the facilities and the patients. Bent on creating a medical institution where sufferers at least had hope, he began collecting medical equipment, gradually providing those with injuries and tumors the opportunity to have life-saving procedures.
