Rachel's Brain [electronic resource]

This medical documentary tells the harrowing story of Rachel Mulkern, who has suffered from a rare and extremely severe form of epilepsy. Throughout her life she has tried to deal with the overwhelming effects of her condition. As we look in on her, we discover that she is faced with as many as five debilitating fits a day. In addition, she is becoming increasingly violent. At a loss to find any effective treatment, her parents have come to the conclusion that her only hope will involve a radical approach: an operation to open her skull and remove half her brain. This documentary follows the surgery and its extraordinary aftermath.
