Imagine a world full of Sheldons from the Big Bang Theory where suddenly, everyone is the “weird kid”. The competitive bubble of the International Mathematics Olympiad in Taiwan. Starring Asa Butterfield (Enders Game,Hugo,The Boy in the Striped Pajamas) it is an intense, sometimes humorous and charming portrait of an autistic British teenager who learns that life is about more than connecting prime numbers – it’s about connecting hearts.
