The Man Who Knew Infinity
Set in the early years of last century, this film is based on the true story of one of the greatest minds of his generation. A poor young man living in India had a talent for mathematics.

The Indian had to overcome race and class differences and eventually went on to revolutionize the field with his startlingly original theorems.
