In 1984, Mrs A heard voices in her head. They said “don’t be afraid”. They tried to re-assure her she wasn’t crazy. And they informed her she had a brain tumour that could kill her stone dead.
Filmed using a blend of stylized reconstruction and the personal testimony of Dr Azuonye – the psychiatrist who gambled his professional credibility on listening to the voices – this is the remarkable story of a woman who owes her life to unseen angels and an eminent scientist who was prepared to believe.
“Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.” – Albert Einstein
