Based on a true story, Drama
A moving drama based on true events, Awakenings focuses on the extraordinary story of Leonard Lowe, a psychiatric patient who has been virtually catatonic and in a coma for almost 40 years. The dedicated yet awkward Dr. Malcolm Sayer is fascinated with Lowe's case and, using the experimental drug L-Dopa, revives the patient from his decades-long sleep. The awakening Leonard, along with other patients, begins to experience a strange new world for the first time, but it soon becomes apparent the effects of L-Dopa may not be as miraculous as first thought.
