SYNOPSIS

The biography of the legendary, Nobel Prize–winning physicist and chemist, who triggered controversy not only in the male dominated world of French science, but also by her unconventional romantic life.  The story covers the most turbulent five years in the life of this genius, between 1905, when she went to Stockholm with her husband, Pierre Curie, to be awarded the Nobel Prize for the discovery of radioactivity and 1911, when she received her second Nobel Prize.
