Synopsis

Science is about the clash of a Noble Prize-winning medical researcher and a brilliant young mathematician who is a fundamentalist Christian in his last year of medical school. The clash sets up, in terms of real characters in action, a monumental question of our time. What is more religious – to put yourself wholeheartedly in the service of life, with the hope of helping to improve it and save it from our own neglect and destructiveness, or to live primarily for another life?
