Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lela Rochon stars as Beth Carter, a woman suffering from a rare malady called Primary Alexithymia, which robs her of the ability to experience emotions. Dr. Steven Molstad (Gordon Pinsent) tries to cure Beth with an experimental brain implant. Sure enough, the emotions begin gushing forward at an astonishing rate, but will Beth be able to survive this terrifying sensory overload? And what is Dr. Molstad's hidden agenda? Making excellent use of both color and black-and-white cinematography, "The Awakening" first aired on March 14, 1997.
