An exceptionally talented 14-year-old starts studying physics at the university. He’s working on the theory of parallel worlds bridged by, as he’s initially convinced, light. The boy has an extraordinary mind and a wounded soul that his mother, who strictly controls his life, is not able to heal. Establishing a new order of things, a man appears in their life and so the boy passes from his mother’s to the man’s care.
