In My Father, My Brother, and Me, Dave Iverson sets off on a personal journey to understand the disease that has taken such a toll on his family. Along the way, he meets some remarkable people -- a leading Parkinson's researcher whose encounter with "frozen" heroin addicts led to a major breakthrough; a Parkinson's sufferer given a new lease on life by an experimental brain surgery; and a geneticist who helped identify some of the gene mutations responsible for Parkinson's and who is now working on drugs to fix them.
The documentary is divided into the following sections:
- Parkinson's: A family story
- A Time-Consuming Hunt for its Causes
- The Quest for a Cure
- The Stem Cell Controversy
- Living with Parkinson's (and the cognitive symptoms)
- Time is Also an Ally
