An exceptionally gifted teenage boy begins his university studies in physics. He is working on a theory of parallel worlds that are linked by light, as he initially believes. He has a brilliant mind and a troubled soul, which his mother, who rules his life with an iron fist, is incapable of healing. When a man appears in their lives, he takes over raising the boy. Along a tumultuous road, a bond forms between the three characters. But their shared happiness doesn’t last long. As the boy finds a solution to the mystery of the passage between worlds, he embarks upon a journey that puts his life in jeopardy.
