Social worker, Dan Cohen, decided on a whim to bring used iPods to a nursing home. To his and the staff’s surprise, many residents suffering from Alzheimer’s, seemed to awaken when able to listen to music from their past. The film follows Cohen as he connects with renowned neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks and they investigate the way music functions in our brains and our lives.
