    Charlie Gordon knows that he isn't very bright. At 32, he mops floors in a bakery and earns just enough to get by. Three evenings a week, he studies at a center for mentally challenged adults. But all of this is about to change for Charlie. As part of a daring experiment, doctors are going to perform surgery on Charlie's brain. They hope the operation and special medication will increase his intelligence, just as it has for the laboratory mouse, Algernon.

    Algernon est une souris de laboratoire dont le traitement du Pr. Nemur et du Dr. Strauss vient de décupler l'intelligence. Enhardis par cette réussite, les deux savants tentent alors, avec l'assistance de la psychologue Alice Kinnian, d'appliquer leur découverte à Charlie Gordon, un simple d'esprit. C'est bientôt l'extraordinaire éveil de l'intelligence pour le jeune homme. Il découvre un monde dont il avait toujours été exclu, et entame une incroyable métamorphose. Mais un jour les facultés supérieures d'Algernon déclinent.
