New York City
All is not well in the Humble hive. Thirty-five year-old astrophysicist Felix Humble returns home following the death of his father, still in search of a unified field theory. But as he collides with his demanding mother, her boorish boyfriend, his former lover and the mysterious gardener who keeps turning up, he realizes his search for unity must somehow include the chaos of family. Love, physics and the joys of beekeeping swirl together with a touch of Hamlet in a comedy as intimate as a garden party and as large as the universe itself.
