Based on the true story of Phineas Gage, a railroad construction foreman who miraculously survived an accident where an iron rod piercing through his brain in 1848. Gage’s case remains one of the greatest medical curiosities of all time.
Neuropsychologist Helen Harlow is an expert at understanding the functions of the human brain but her own remains a mystery. Turning on a once-brilliant future filled with scientific promise, Helen attempts to escape the mess of her life by diving headfirst into a new one: living in a frat-house basement, teaching Psych 101 to clueless freshmen, and confronting both her depression and the puzzling attentions of her slacker housemate, Finlay.
Phineas and Helen’s stories entwine, showing us how far we have advanced scientifically, and yet how little we still comprehend of how our own minds work.
