Takes as its starting point one of the most mysterious and romantic mathematical collaborations of all time.

This is a story about connections between ideas, cultures and times. In London a man attempts to unravel the secrets of his lover. In Bangalore a woman collapses on a train. In Cambridge in 1914 Englishman GH Hardy seeks to comprehend the ideas of the Indian prodigy Srinivasa Ramanujan.

Simultaneously a narrative and an investigation, it weaves a provocative theatrical pattern about our relentless compulsion to understand.
