Robin’s Wish is a timely and urgent film biography of much beloved Robin Williams. It weaves together the untold love story of his marriage to Susan Schneider Williams, his untimely suicide, his rare neurological illness, and his universal experience moving through pain in the search for healing and joy. It reveals Robin’s dissociative experiences with the devastating neurological illness he didn’t know he had: Lewy Body Dementia (LBD). Beyond Robin’s personal experience, the film uses what he went through to tackle broader stigmas around the mental symptoms of physiological diseases, issues around suicide and healing, and the need for more funding for research into neurological diseases.
