This is the extraordinary story of the world’s most famous living scientist, told for the first time in his own words and by those closest to him. Made with unique access to Stephen Hawking’s private life, this is an intimate and moving journey into his world, both past and present.
An in-depth portrait of an iconic figure, the film relates his incredible personal journey from boyhood underachiever, to Ph.D. genius, to being diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease and given just two years to live. Despite all odds, Hawking has shaped science as we know it.
