A man who can "see" without seeing; amputees who feel pain in limbs that are gone; a man who believes his parents are impostors; and an epileptic who believes he is God: a neuroscientist gives the viewer insight into these strange cases.

Shackleton resolved to rescue each and every man, and turned disaster into one of the greatest survival stories of all time.
