Lana Slezic's The Voice is a short documentary about acclaimed CBC Metro Morning radio host Andy Barrie and his experience with Parkinson's and deep brain stimulation. This intimate portrait of a much-loved Canadian radio personality provides a rare view of a Parkinson's patient's experience before receiving deep brain stimulation therapy, after surgery, and after the neurostimulator has been turned on.

"I can go out now, I can leave the house without worrying about it. DBS has stopped the dyskinesia by 90% and now I can continue the activities that I enjoy such as cooking and embroidery."
