The Best of Men charts one remarkable doctor's transformation of care for paraplegics. An inspirational doctor arrives at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in 1944 and transforms the lives of his patients and staff. The patients are paralysed soldiers, written off and facing death from neglect, but their big breakthrough comes when Doctor Guttmann introduces sport into their rehabilitation. Guttmann rejects the general view that paralysis is a terminal condition and throws out the old care regime and soon establishes a new regime, getting all his patients to live fulfilling lives, using sport to help patients build physical strength as well as self-respect. This heart warming and uplifting true story of the birth of the Paralympic Games, follows Doctor Ludwig Guttmann, an unsung hero, who revolutionised life for paralysed people.

Towards the end of the second world war Dr Ludwig Guttmann, a brisk refugee from Nazi Germany, arrives at Stoke Mandeville hospital in Buckinghamshire and is appalled to find the partially paralysed spinal patients heavily sedated and left to rot with bed sores. He immediately begins a new regime,disposing of old equipment and sedatives, bringing him into conflict with stern Sister Edwards and pompous consultant Cowan, as well as the patients. However the sister backs him when she realises he is treating her charges as people, not patients, talking to them and involving them in musical entertainments and sporting activity. Soon Whitehall are sending him all their spinal patients and, with visits to the pub and wheelchair sports taught by an army sergeant, he becomes the men's hero. With the war over Ludwig organizes national wheelchair sports competitions which will in turn lead to the establishment of the Paralympic games. An end title informs that in 1966, now a British citizen, Dr Guttmann was deservedly knighted for his part in bringing hope to the hopeless.
