Plot
On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness—or genius—will she inherit?

Characters
Catherine: a young woman who inherited at least some of her father's mathematical genius, and, she fears, his "instability" as well; she gave up her life and schooling to take care of his father until his recent death (female/age range 21-28)

Robert: a recently deceased mathematician who did brilliant, breakthrough, work in his youth, but whose later years were plagued by delusional mental illness; he is seen in Catherine's imagination and in flashbacks (male/age range 50 )
