When Rachel Lehrer (Stanchfield), a young girl challenged with undiagnosed Asperger’s syndrome, leaves her overprotective parents for the freedom of college at prestigious Somerton Tech University, her hopes for a future in the field of mathematics are high.

With her graduation on the line, Rachel enlists the help of her father (Brett Rice of Remember the Titans and Forrest Gump) to fight the irrational system, even though it means risking everything she’s worked so hard to accomplish.
