Brief description of plot:
The How, Why, and When of “creation” has puzzled mankind for thousands of years. Renowned astrophysicist Professor Jeanine Markham is convinced that her research is drawing near to answering that eternal question. Expanding upon the theories of Einstein and Hawking, her discoveries are leading to a conclusion that all creation is solely based on principles of scientific fact, an proof so complex that it has avoided detection for centuries. Her research is heresy at the institution where she’s employed, St. Genesius University, where an impenetrable ultra-religious doctrine of All Creation Is Of God rules. Jeanine’s superiors, particularly Monsignor Bastini, President of St. Genesius, angrily challenge and condemn the blasphemies she’s unearthing at their faith filled institution. Jeanine’s fact-based world ignites into unfathomable biblical nightmare
as she gets closer and closer still to her Irrefutable Proof.

Noel Markham: 30-40, Jeanine’s husband, a reasonable man who lives and abides by the established rules. Their teenage daughter is most important in his life.
