In 1962, a physicist goes to a conference in the Alps and soon finds himself facing a series of strange phenomena: he observes unusual cloud formations, meets a stranger who seems to know all his secrets and discovers the existence of a mysterious underground passage.
The Theory of Everything forefronts a major cinematic figure, that of Timm Kröger.

As a result, his film seems strangely familiar, yet completely original. Fascinating.
