OF GRACE intimately captures the profound transformation of a revered
physician and her family in the wake of a life-changing accident. For
Dr. Grace Dammann, a pioneering AIDS specialist who was honored by the
Dalai Lama, a routine commute across the Golden Gate Bridge turned
tragic when another driver crashed head on into her car. After seven
weeks in a coma and a dozen surgeries, Grace miraculously awakened with
her cognitive abilities intact, though her body was left shattered.
STATES OF GRACE follows her return home to the Buddhist community where
she and her partner Nancy “Fu” Schroeder live with their teenage
daughter Sabrina, who was born with cerebral palsy.
