The Irish Neurologist William P. Howlett (70) has been practicing in Moshi, Tanzania, for over 30 years. At the bustling Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre he still pursues his passion for treatment, teaching, and research.
“Professor Howlett makes for a personable lead subject in this interesting documentary debut.” — WF

With his 71st birthday approaching fast, Howlett looks back on the defining moments of his life: experiencing the devastating AIDS epidemic of the 1980s first-hand, losing his wife in 1992, and the decision to remain in Tanzania without her, a choice which threw him into the deep abyss of solitude. Nowadays, he lives a solitary life and work seems to be endless, yet his only companion.
