The year is 1858 and Charles Darwin struggles to complete his theory of natural selection while coping with his daughter's fatal illness and his own loss of faith. Meanwhile, halfway around the world, an unknown explorer is about to come up with the exact same theory. Vibrantly comic and deeply moving, this gripping drama examines whether scientific discovery inevitably trumps religion, or if they can both coexist.
