Based on a book: Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen by Jane Hawking

Keywords: Drama, Biography

Biographical drama details famed physicist Stephen Hawking's relationship with first wife Jane Wilde.

Stephen Hawking, student at Cambridge University and would-be prestigious astrophysicist, falls in love with ravishing co-ed Jane Wilde; he is diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ("Lou Gehrig's disease") at twenty-one, forever changing his life as he is transformed from a healthy young man into an ailing shell of his former physical self. Unbowed, Hawking presses on with his research into the science of time with Jane at his side, defying a grim prognosis as he matures into a man without parallel in his field over their three decades of marriage.
