The Diving Bell and The Butterfly is the true story of Jean-Dominique
Bauby. Based on his memoir, the film depicts BaubyÂ’s life after a
massive stroke that left him with locked-in syndrome. Mentally aware of
his surroundings, but paralyzed except for movement in his left eye,
Bauby wrote his memoir using only blinks of his left eyelid.

Health Studies as well as representatives of the Regina QuÂ’Appelle
