Movie Info

In this fact-based drama set in the 19th century, an unorthodox doctor scandalizes the medical institution by treating his mentally retarded patients as human beings. American poet Walt Whitman soon comes to his defense, but the controversial author's radical reputation causes the doctor even more trouble.
