His work, Small Gaps Between Primes, was immediately recognized as an important mathematical break- through, and Zhang became an instant celebrity - a role for which he was unprepared. The film documents Zhang's quiet perseverance amidst adversity, and his preference for thinking and working in solitude. Zhang's story is interwoven with a history of the Twin Prime Conjecture as told by several mathematicians.G
