български език
Историята на лекар-експериментатор и пациентите, чиито живот той променя. Психиатърът използва нестандартно лекарство, за да"пробуди" жертвите на рядко заболяване. Пробуждането за живот на първия пациент изпълва с благоговение и ентусиазъм не само пациента, но и лекаря. Историята на тяхното приятелство е изпитание както за наранимото човешко сърце, така и за силата на човешкия дух.

Český
Rok 1969. Dr. Malcolm Sayer zkoumá v newyorské nemocnici skupinu pacientů, kteří v důsledku prodělané encefalitidy byli po desítky let v katastrofickém stavu. Provedené testy ho přesvědčí, že tito pacienti žijí svým vnitřním životem. Sayaer získá souhlas ředitele nemocnice Kaufmana k experimentální léčbě drogou L-DOPA, která úspěšně pomohla lidem trpícím Parkinsonovou nemocí. Se souhlasem pacientovy matky vyzkouší drogu na Leonardu Loweovi a podaří se mu u něho obnovit schopnost mluvit a pohybovat se. Kaufman pak povolí léčbu navou drogou i u ostatních katatoniků. Všichni se proberou k životu. Po čase se ale u prvního pacienta začnou projevovat příznaky ztráty nabytých schopností. Sayer je zoufalý, protože vidí, že droga působí jen dočasně. Sestra Costellová ho přesvědčuje, že i tak pro své pacienty udělal nesmírně mnoho. Vrátil je alespoň načas do života. Opakované pokusy s jinými drogami už nikdy nepřinesly podobně dramatické výsledky

Dr. Sayer overtager en afdeling for stærkt katatoniske patienter på et psykiatisk hospital. Her afprøver han stoffet L-DOPA på patienten Lowe, der langsomt kommer ud af sin skal af indesluttet tavshed og begynder at opleve livet på ny. Desværre har stoffet stærke bivirkninger.

Deutsch
Dr. Sayer ist ein junger Arzt und neu in der Nervenklinik. Neben den "normalen" Geisteskranken begegnet er hier Menschen, die an einer besonderen, äußerst seltenen Gemütskrankheit leiden. Hoffnungslose Fälle, die - von den Medizinern abgeschoben - hinter einer Mauer des Schweigens dahinvegetieren. Leonard ist einer der Patienten. Fasziniert von seinem grotesken Charme und dem rätselhaften Krankheitsbild, entschließt sich Dr. Sayer, an ihm ein neues Medikament auszuprobieren. Als Leonard eines Morgens tatsächlich sprechen und nach dreißig Jahren auch wieder laufen kann, glauben alle sofort an ein Wunder ...

Έχοντας «ξυπνήσει», μετά από χρόνια σε κατατονική κατάσταση, έχουν να αντιμετωπίσουν μια καινούργια ζωή σε μια εντελώς καινούργια εποχή.

עִבְרִית
סרט המבוסס על ספרו של הנוירולוג אוליבר סאקס ועוסק בפרשיה שחוללה סערה בארה"ב ב-1966. כדי לנסות ולשפר את מצבם של נפגעי מחלת השינה משנות העשרים, החליט סאקס להשתמש בתרופה חדשה שיועדה במקור לטפל בחולי פרקינסון. בתחילה נדמה היה שהנה מתרחש שיביא מזור לאותם אומללים שרבצו כצמחים על מיטות חוליים, אך עד מהרה הסתבר שהשיבה לחיים היא זמנית בלבד. וויליאמס בתפקיד הרופא ודה נירו כאחד ה"מתעוררים" מעלים את הקושיה המוסרית: האם עדיף להעיר את נפגעי המחלה למרות התוצאות הידועות, או שמא למנוע מהם את התסכול והזעם הכרוכים בזמניותה של ההתעוררות.

Magyar
A visszahúzódó, inkább kutatóorvosnak, mint gyakorló pszichiáternek való Dr. Malcolm Sayer a Baibridge-i Kórház ideggyógyászatára kerül. Az osztályon szinte teljesen öntudatlan, gyermekkoruk óta tetszhalott állapotban lévő betegeket kezelnek. Bár nem tudnak beszélni és érzelmeiket, gondolataikat más módon adják környezetük tudtára, Sayer meg van győződve róla, hogy ezek az emberek "odabenn mégis élnek". A lelkes orvos egy olyan új gyógyszert fedez fel, amellyel a betegeket vissza lehet hozni őket az életbe. Csodálatos ébredésnek lehetünk tanúi.

Italiano
Tratto dal libro di Oliver Sacks che era una relazione medica sui "miracoli" indotti dalla droga L-Dopa, somministrata tra il 1969 e il 1973 nel Mount Carmel Hospital di New York a più di duecento malati, sopravvissuti a una grave epidemia di encefalite letargica che si era diffusa nel mondo tra il 1917 e il 1927, il film, sceneggiato da Steven Zaillan, sviluppa una delle venti storie, quella del risveglio di Leonard L. Mediocre in termini estetici e ruffiano verso lo spettatore, è una sagra degli stereotipi del cinema ospedaliero in salsa hollywoodiana che censura, inzucchera, banalizza e mistifica la materia del libro. Qualche momento di autentica malinconia e un imperdonabile finale sdolcinato.

30年の昏睡から目覚めた患者と、彼を救おうとする医師の葛藤を描く人間ドラマ。30年間昏睡状態だった男レナードが、奇跡的に意識を回復した。セイヤー博士の治療が功を奏したのだ。博士はその治療を、他の患者にも適用してめざましい効果をあげるが…。

어릴 때 뇌염을 앓은 레너드(Leonard Lowe: 로버트 드니로 분)는 11살 때부터 손이 떨리는 증세가 나타나고 글도 쓰지 못하게 되자 학교를 그만두고 병원에서 살게 된다. 정신은 잠들고 근육은 강직된 후기뇌염 기면성 환자가 된 것. 레너드가 수십년간 수용돼 있는 배인브리지 병원에 세이어 박사(Dr. Malcolm Sayer: 로빈 윌리암스 분)가 부임해 온다. 세이어 박사는 이들이 공을 받아내는 것을 보고 내면은 살아있다고 확신한다. 그리고는 그들의 정신을 일깨울 수 있는 것을 찾는다. 환자의 이름을 부르거나 음악을 들려주거나 인간적인 접촉을 갖는 것 등. 마침 그때 파킨슨병 환자에게 엘도파라는 약이 효과가 있다는 발표를 듣고 세이어는 이들의 증세가 그 병의 증세와 비슷하다는 점에서 힌트를 얻어 약물치료를 할 생각을 하게 된다. 부작용을 염려한 병원측에서는 레너드에게만 투약해보라고 허락해 준다. 엘도파를 투약받은 레너드에게 기적이 일어난다. 깨어나 말도 하고 글도 읽고 맘대로 움직일 수 있게 된 것. 삶의 환희를 맛본 레너드는 세이어 박사에게 일상적인 삶과 사랑의 소중함을 역설하는데. {세이어 박사와 그의 동료들은 뇌염 후유증을 앓는 환자들을 치료를 위한 약물 투여를 계속하고 있다. 레너드와 다른 환자들은 일시적으로 깨어났지만, 1969년 그 해 여름만큼 놀라운 기적만큼은 다시는 일어나지 않았다. 세이어 박사는 브롱크스에 있는 만성질환자 병원에서 진료를 계속하고 있다.}

Bronx, 1969. Malcolm Sayer (Robin Williams) é um neurologista que conseguiu emprego em um hospital psiquiátrico. Lá ele encontra vários pacientes que aparentemente estão catatônicos, mas Sayer sente que eles estão só “adormecidos” e que se forem medicados da maneira certa poderão ser despertados. Assim pesquisa bem o assunto e chega à conclusão de que a L-DOPA, uma nova droga que já estava sendo usada para pacientes com o Mal de Parkinson, deve ser o medicamento ideal para este casos. No entanto, ao levar o assunto para o diretor, ele autoriza que apenas um paciente seja submetido ao tratamento.
