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.
