Synopsis In 2014, neurologist Phil Kennedy shocked the world when he traveled to Belize to implant an electrode in his own brain, becoming “the father of Cyborgs”. Brilliant pioneer or mad scientist? Kennedy never stopped pushing the limits of science. But it also poses a crucial question: by modifying our bodies and our brains, are we going to become superhuman… or dependent on machines that can go off the rails at any time?
