Summary
Dr. Malcolm Sayer is a shy research physician who uses an experimental drug to "awaken" the catatonic victims of a rare disease. Leonard is the first patient to receive the controversial treatment. His awakening, filled with awe and enthusiasm, proves a rebirth for Sayer, too, as the exuberant patient reveals life's simple -- but unutterably sweet -- pleasures to the introverted doctor
