When Robin Cavendish met Diana Blacker in the 1950s, the pair fell in love immediately and swiftly got married. Whilst holidaying in Kenya, Robin was suddenly struck with polio, leaving him paralysed from the neck down and only given months to live. Refusing to give up, the couple successfully battled bureaucracies in the British health service to allow Robin to return home. Once there, and together with some ingenious, supportive friends, the pair gradually made remarkable advances in improving the lives of wheelchair uses and combating bigotry towards disabled people in much of society at the time. Based on the parents of the film's producer, the directorial debut of Andy Serkis is a warm-hearted, funny and compassionate portrait of an inspiring couple.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
