Groundbreaking physician and pioneer, Barbara Korsch, developed the definitive study of doctor/patient relationships.  A maverick for over 80 years, her compelling narrative takes us from a daring escape from Nazi Germany to life in the United States where, as a young physician, her fight with the medical establishment began.  We learn through interviews and archival footage how she persevered despite overwhelming opposition to her message - doctors need to listen.
