about: Charles Burnett, Jr. struggled with Parkinson's disease for over 40 years, one of the longest cases on record. Confined to a wheelchair and with no speech communication, he was kept in good health far beyond doctors‘ expectations by the dedicated nursing care of his wife, Miriam. Charles‘ son provides a poignant narration that recalls his father’s struggle with Parkinson’s, and how the extraordinary bond his parents shared managed to transcend the paralysis and depression of “God’s Prison”.
This film was made entirely with photos and film taken by Mr. Burnett prior to his paralysis. Winner of 4 film festival awards.
