Marsh is a truly gifted brain surgeon, currently serving as a senior consultant neurosurgeon at the Atkinson Morley Wing at St George’s Hospital, one of the country’s largest specialist brain surgery units. He specialises in operating on the brain under local anesthesia and was also the subject of a major BBC documentary ‘Your Life in Their Hands’ in 2004, which won the Royal Television Society Gold Medal. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2010 Birthday Honours.

This film delves deep into his personal life to find answers about his humanity, achievements, failures and the complex relationship he shares with his patients to surrender their lives in his hands. To help others in every possible was, Henry has been going out to Kyiv for over 15 years to help improve upon the medieval brain surgery he witnessed there during his first visit in 1992 and thus is deeply revered by his patients, colleagues and people desperate for some miracle to save their loved ones.
