A compelling blend of autobiography and history, this documentary chronicles the life and work of Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist Eric Kandel and explores the developments of science in understanding how the brain records and stores memory. Kandel's childhood in Nazi-occupied Vienna and his early years in New York are illustrated through archival footage and dramatic re-creations. His emotional connection to Judaism and details about his personal and professional life are featured as Kandel is seen lecturing in Vienna and New York, and in discussions with family and friends.
