Floor sweeper Charly Gordon (Cliff Robertson), IQ 68, is the butt of everyone’s jokes at the local bakery where he works. But when scientists offer him the chance to undergo an experiment in the enhancement of human intelligence, he is transformed into a genius. Rejected by his old colleagues, and treated like a guinea pig by the researchers, Charly’s newfound intellect brings with it a host of new challenges, the greatest being the possibility that his salvation was merely temporary…
