Synopsis

A Gifted Man is a drama about a brilliant, charismatic surgeon whose life changes forever when his deceased ex-wife begins teaching him the meaning of life from the "hereafter."

Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) is an exceptional doctor who lives a materialistic life of luxury thanks to his work-obsessed career and powerful and wealthy patients; however, Michael's ordered world is rocked when his ex-wife, Anna (Jennifer Ehle), an idealistic free-clinic doctor and the love of his life, mysteriously appears to him.

In an attempt to go back to his "normal" life, Michael visits Anton (Pablo Schreiber), a carpenter who moonlights as a Shaman to try and extract Anna's spirit from his body, but when Anna reappears and asks Michael to go to her clinic to help keep it running, he realizes she needs him more now then ever.

After seeing the Clinic's disarrayed staff trying to carry on Anna's work with the underprivileged, he feels responsible to step in and take over where she left off.

Curious about Michael's sudden change in behaviour is his efficient assistant, Rita (Margo Martindale), who works tirelessly to facilitate his schedule in order to accommodate his added responsibilities.

Touched by those in need and accepting of Anna's compassionate "presence," Michael's attitude toward serving the rich and poor is turned upside down, and he begins to see that there's room in his life for everyone.
