ROBIN'S WISH takes a close look at Academy Award-winning actor Robin Williams' final years and the rare condition that led to his death by suicide. Although depression (compounded by a recent Parkinson's diagnosis) was widely reported to be the overriding reason for Williams' decision, his widow, Susan Schneider Williams, reveals that the autopsy and subsequent research showed that the actor was suffering from an advanced, extremely severe case of Lewy Body Dementia (LBD), which can impact memory, motor control, and thinking. Susan and several lifelong friends, neighbors, and co-workers (including producers and directors on Williams' final projects) discuss how Williams' behavior changed during the last year of his life. Director Tylor Norwood also includes details about LBD through interviewing specialists who study it, but this isn't just a deep dive into a rare disease. It's a tribute to Robin Williams the actor, the comedian, the friend, and the husband.
