Cambridge, USA, 1942. Stan Ulam is a 30-year-old talented Polish Jewish mathematician, a good-looking and brilliant man. Born in Lvov, Poland, he and his brother emigrated to the US to escape the German invasion, unfortunately leaving the rest of his family behind. When he hears his hometown is to be occupied, he considers returning to fight, but a friend convinces him to apply his talents to the Manhattan Project, in New Mexico. Stan moves to Los Alamos with Françoise, a French woman he meets and marries after a whirlwind romance. The Project is about the creation of the atomic bomb, and Stan finds himself morally conflicted. While desperately trying to help his sister flee Nazi occupied Poland, Stan collaborates to create the first computer, giving birth to the digital age as Europe bursts into flames.Based on the autobiography Adventures of a Mathematician by Stanislaw Ulam, a Jewish mathematician and one of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th century.
