Narrated by actress Danica McKellar (The Wonder Years), this documentary presents the inspiring life story of the pioneering American mathematician Julia Robinson (1919-1985) and charts her major contribution to solving one of the 20th century's most vexing mathematical questions - Hilbert's Tenth. It is pieced together by a wide array of archival footage, stills and recordings, recollections from other mathematicians - including the three others responsible for solving H10 - and warm reminiscences by her sister/biographer, Constance Reid.
