Abstract:

The vast majority of coma patients face a critical and very limited window of recovery time-after one year, the chance for improvement is slim to none. This documentary follows the progress of four individuals in comas or vegetative states over the course of a year, exploring the mysteries of the injured brain as each patient emerges, to varying degrees, from darkness. Interweaving commentary from renowned physicians and neurologists, the program goes inside a top U.S. medical facility for coma treatment-the Center for Head Injuries at the JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey. With unprecedented access to the center, the program also chronicles the emotional stories of the four patients' families, who must deal with overwhelming medical complexities and frightening uncertainties about the fate of their loved ones. (103 minutes).
