Catherine spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Following his death, she deals with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, her father's former student who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. A burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness - or genius - will she inherit?

Cast:

  • Jess Brownell as Catherine
  • Sharon Eyster as Claire
  • Sarah Heddins as Hal
