The Best of Men follows one remarkable doctor as he transforms the standards of care for paraplegics. Arriving at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in 1944, Doctor Guttman reinvigorates the lives of his staff and patients with one daring move: he introduces athletics into the rehabilitation plan of his patients, paralyzed soldiers who have been cast-off and are facing death from neglect. Guttmann rejects the general view that paralysis is a terminal condition and soon establishes an entirely new care regime. Using sports, his patients learn to build not only physical strength, but self-respect and a sense of fulfillment.
