The Formula One legend suffered a severe brain injury in a 2013 skiing accident and has remained out of the public eye ever since.
In Schumacher, the 52-year-old's family open up about the tragedy which reshaped their lives, and the words of son Mick reduced many viewers to tears.
The 22-year-old has followed in the footsteps of his father and now races for Haas in Formula One - and he said he would give up everything to share these experiences with his seven-time world champion dad.
He said: "Since the accident, of course, these experiences, these moments that I believe many people have with their parents are no longer present, or to a lesser extent.
"And in my view, that is a little unfair."
He continued: "I think dad and me, we would understand each other in a different way now. Simply because we speak a similar language, the language of motorsport. And that we would have much more to talk about.
"And that's where my head is most of the time. Thinking that would be so cool, that would be.
"I would give up everything just for that."
His touching words broke the hearts of countless viewers:
What a man, what a legend. I was crying throughout the movie but that last interview bit with Mick broke my heart. Such a strong family :heart: #SchumacherNetflix #KeepFighting pic.twitter.com/eK73Vj0DxB- bianca³³ (@simplylovely33) September 15, 2021
