In 1997, at the age of 22, handsome young Richard Norris got his hands on a gun at exactly the wrong time. In a state of emotional turmoil, he pulled the trigger. Richard’s parents rushed him to hospital and he survived the gunshot, although his face did not. Ashamed, he became a recluse for 15 years. He moved to a house atop a mountain away from people where he covered the mirrors and lived without speaking a single word.

While perusing the internet one day, Richard’s mother discovered that nearby doctor, Eduardo Rodriguez, specialized in facial transplants. Despite the risks, Richard agreed to undergo a facial transplant.

Dr. Rodriguez performed a miracle and reconstructed Richard’s face so beautifully, that Richard now has the ability to speak, he no longer covers mirrors, and he has regained the confidence to live in society.
