1969. Dr Malcolm Sayer (Robin Williams) takes up a post at Bainbridge Hospital, New York. Among his patients, he discovers a group of forgotten survivors of the 1916 Sleeping Sickness epidemic - a virus that turned its victims into living statues. He is particularly drawn to one of these victims, Leonard Lowe (Robert De Niro). With a new experimental drug, Dr Sayer discovers a vital key to 'awakening' Leonard and the others to the joys and pains of living, whilst awakening in himself long dormant capacities for love and friendship. Inspirational and critically acclaimed, 'Awakenings' is based on a true and haunting story.
