The story, based on the real life work of Dr. Malcolm Sayer, is about about a doctor who makes terrific strides in fighting post-encephalitis patients that were considered incurable. The patients were in a persistent catatonic state.

Sayer is a neurologist who discovers that the drug L-Dopa can be used to “unlock” the patients minds and bodies, bringing them back to the real world and the problems living in the real world brings.

Behind the Scenes

Knowing

Nicolas Cage stars as astrophysicist and widower John Koestler, who decodes a series of seemingly random numbers, which had been buried in a time capsule, 50-years prior and recently dug up at his son s elementary school. In it are some chillingly accurate predictions of coming disasters, with very specific details… when, where, and how many will die.

The Knowing, a sci-fi thriller, blends psychic premonitions, realism, and conspiracy with the drama of end times destruction on a global scale to create a tolerable movie, which is certainly better than some of Nicolas Cage’s recent attempts.
