Ask Dr. Ruth chronicles the incredible life of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, a Holocaust survivor who became America's most famous sex therapist. With her diminutive frame, thick German accent, and uninhibited approach to sex therapy and education, Dr. Ruth transformed the conversation around sexuality. As she approaches her 90th birthday and shows no signs of slowing down, Dr. Ruth revisits her painful past and unlikely path to a career at the forefront of the sexual revolution.

 

"This refugee who wasn't even allowed to attend high school managed to earn a doctorate and grab a microphone - and she has no intention of letting go."
- Variety
"...a crowd-pleasing documentary that traces her life from Holocaust survivor to beloved media figure."
