It’s 2008 in Geneva and science is on the brink of one of its greatest discoveries, the elusive Higgs boson, the fundamental particle that explains the universe. Alice, a physicist, is poised for a career-defining moment, but chaos reigns at home. As the world’s largest particle accelerator powers up, the family triggers its own high-energy collisions.
Lucy Kirkwood’s lightening-paced script is both funny and terrifying, a tough and tender family drama that reaches for answers to the biggest questions for all of us.
Contains adult themes and strong language. Some flashing lights.
