Featuring narration by actor John Turturro and exclusive interviews with Nobel Prize Laureate Eric Kandel, Oliver Sacks, Temple Grandin, Elyn Saks, Susanna Kaysen, Joanne Greenberg, and others, 'How to Touch A Hot Stove' explores the complex variations in human experience and differences in thinking, feeling, and perceiving.
It identifies the new civil rights movement that has emerged to combat the marginalization of those with "mental disorders", exploring why the movement is more complex than other civil rights movements. It further reveals the often disparate perspectives held both by professionals and those with lived experience and challenges the audience to go "beyond the movement" and make a difference themselves.
