Robin Williams' battle with Lewy Body Dementia will be chronicled in a new documentary.

Robin's Wish features behind-the-scenes footage of the beloved Mrs. Doubtfire star, who took his own life in August, 2014, as he unknowingly struggled with the progressive neurological disease that was discovered after his death.

"During the last year of his life, Robin was confronted with anxiety, paranoia, insomnia, scary altered realities and a roller coaster of hope and despair," his widow Susan Schneider Williams tells Rolling Stone in a statement.

Robin McLaurin Williams (July 21, 1951 – August 11, 2014) was an American actor and comedian. He is often regarded by critics as one of the best comedians of all time. He was known for his improvisation skills, and the wide variety of memorable voices he created.

"It wasn't until after Robin's passing, in autopsy, that the source of his terror was revealed: he had diffuse Lewy body disease. It was one of the worst cases medical professionals had seen."

Susan was able to cope with the loss of Robin and make sense of the breakdown ahead of his death after researching more about the illness as part of the film.

"Armed with the name of a brain disease I'd never heard of, I set out on a mission to understand it, and that led me down my unchosen path of advocacy," she adds.

And what I discovered along the way was bigger than me, and bigger than Robin. The full story was revealed during the making of this film and it holds the truth that Robin and I had been searching for."

Robin's Wish, directed by Tylor Norwood, also features interviews with the icon's collaborators, and will be released digitally on 1 September (20).
