Phil Kennedy is one of the world’s most famous neurologists and pioneers of BCI (brain-computer interfacing). With never-before-access to his life story, this film traces Dr. Kennedy’s dramatic and perilous journey to help people with disabilities - from creating the first “cyborg” with brain implants to radical self-experimentation.
