Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme is the chronicle detailing how Steven Strange went from being a concerned older brother to his sister April to being a superbly gifted surgeon with an ego that dwarfs his talents. The viewer sees how a serious car accident causes Doctor Strange to become completely powerless to use his skilled hands to save lives and the depths of despair into which he sinks.From official release/information:
Description: Peel back the layers of reality and behold a stunning realm hidden beneath. One of magic and wonder. Of sorcery and enchantment. Of ancient spells, secret doors and remarkable heroes who protect us from evil. Because this is also a world of dark mysticism, malevolent forces and unspeakable horrors. And within the shadows around us, a supernatural war is waged. But the balance is shifting. Darkness is winning. Yet there is hope... Join us as Dr. Stephen Strange embarks on a wondrous journey to the heights of a Tibetan mountain, where he seeks healing at the feet of the mysterious Ancient One. But before his wounds can mend, Strange must first let go of his painful past and awaken a gift granted to very few. The gift of magic. Empowered as the new Sorcerer Supreme, Dr. Strange now tests his limits, rising up against monsters that push at the gates, facing the most terrifying entity humankind has ever known.
