Show Synopsis: Catherine, the 20-something daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius and famous professor at the University of Chicago, struggles with mathematical genius and mental illness. Catherine had cared for her father through a lengthy mental illness. Upon Robert's death, his ex-graduate student Hal discovers a paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in Robert's office.
