      Dr. Walter Freeman was an expert in lobotomy, which is a form of neurosurgery that needed cutting part of the brain’s frontal lobes. He performed these procedures among children who were treated for pychosis and other behavioral problems, hoping to find a cure for their mental illness.

      He was trying to perfect the procedure, which was developed by a Swiss psychiatrist in the late 1800s and later asylums during the 40’s and the 50’s also made used of his methods. The doctor was once tagged as a proponent and a hero of modern medicine. Over the course of three decades, about 40,000 are believed to have undergone lobotomy in America.

      However, this was met heavy criticisms and protests. There were great concerns about how humane this process is. In the 70’s, lobotomy was banned in most countries and Nobel was pressured to rescind the award they first bestowed on Dr. Freeman.

      The documentary put the arguments side by side to carefully profile the lobotomist. Was he a medical hero or a moral monster?
