Synopsis: 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. “A long-overdue bio-doc that, in its spirited way, is as affirming as last year's paean to another important octogenarian Ruth, RBG.” – Robert Abele, TheWrap. “Ask Dr. Ruth offers up insight into a woman who helped so many others truly know themselves.” –Maureen Lee Lenker, Entertainment Weekly.
