In his deeply personal directorial debut, Gosha Kutsenko explores the high-wire life of a neurosurgeon. Dr. Yury Mikhailovich spends his day in and out of the operating theatre, with only brief interludes to comfort patients’ relatives. As he distracts himself from the realities of his job with multiple love affairs, he is haunted by one thought: is he truly saving lives, or just prolonging suffering? Dedicated to his mother, who lost a two-year battle with brain cancer, Doctor is at once a personal thank you to medical professionals, and an honest acknowledgement of the crushing responsibility that comes with this line of work.
