This film is about English physicist and mathematician Isaac Newton (Karl Pruner) who is recognized as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution. Newton made seminal contributions to optics, and he shares credit with Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz for the development of calculus. Like a comet blazing across the night sky, Isaac Newton's theories on celestial movement and gravity scorched the fusty intellects at the Royal Academy in 1683. In this historical drama we see his young scribe, Humphrey (Kris Lemche), caught up in the rollicking race to change how the universe is perceived. He finds that even the greatest of men must overcome personal tragedies to achieve success. Through Newton, Humphrey learns that knowledge is what enriches existence and civilization, a lesson he shares later in life with his students and son...This film won the "Video Magic Award"from Parenting Magazine
