This is the breathtaking story of Daniel Tammet. A twenty-something with extraordinary mental abilities, Daniel is one of the world’s few savants. He can do calculations to 100 decimal places in his head, and learn a language in a week. This documentary follows Daniel as he travels to America to meet the scientists who are convinced he may hold the key to unlocking similar abilities in everyone. He also meets the world’s most famous savant, the man who inspired Dustin Hoffman’s character in the Oscar winning film ‘Rain Man’. (2005)

  1. The flip side of seeing how some people have amazing abilities is watching groups of people having shocking blind spots, such as the way our government marched headlong into the war in Iraq. People can be either hyper rational or irrational.

  2. That was truly amazing. Thanks! It was such a pleasure on this Sunday morning to spend my time and attention on something unrelated to the sad state of affairs in our world.
