In walks young Clara (Troian Bellisario), an artist who shares Isaac’s deep fascination with space. Their unlikely scientific collaboration soon brings them to the brink of a monumental discovery. It also brings them closer together and, although Isaac thinks that “outer space is a safer bet than love,” Clara’s arrival just might change his mind.
