Extraordinary global health leader and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Dr MR Rajagopal is a small man with a big dream: a pain-free India. His mission is to bring ethical practice to modern medicine in the world's most populous democratic country. To achieve this he must move mountains and rediscover the first principals of medicine - the Hippocratic Oath.
Hippocratic centres on Dr Rajagopal, an Indian palliative care doctor who does one thing especially well - CARE. His mission? To make effective pain management accessible to all.
And if that doesn't sound incredible to you - WAIT. Because what's so special about this film, is the man at the centre of it. Dr Raj. He treats every patient as it they were family, with a gentle touch here, a half smile there, a hug when it's needed.
And watching him at work, it's easy to forget that he's actually starting a revolution. A revolution in modern medicine - where quality of life and not just quantity will become the priority once again.
Hippocratic is a beautiful, inspiring account of this man's effort to reduce the misery of others. It's a movie for everyone, all over the world. So don't miss out.
