News About "Breathe"

Robin Cavendish may have been paralyzed by polio, but his fight to make his condition better eventually freed many other disabled people facing similar circumstances.

Learn more about Polio, a virus that affects the muscle (including those that help a person breathe) and can cause paralysis, permanent disability and death. The disease is now commonly combated by a preventive vaccine.

From the Studio:
When Robin ((Andrew Garfield) is struck down by polio at the age of 28, he is confined to a hospital bed and given only a few months to live. With the help of Diana's twin brothers (Tom Hollander) and the groundbreaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville), Robin and Diana dare to escape the hospital ward to seek out a full and passionate life together - raising their young son, traveling and devoting their lives to helping other polio patients.
