Storyline

Taylor Wilson, an exceptionally smart and curious kid, is given the room and encouragement by his "ordinary" parents to nurture his great gifts and passion for nuclear science and experimentation. When his grandmother becomes ill, the 14-year old becomes involved in an attempt to harness the short-lived isotopes that kill cancer cells and then deteriorate before they harm healthy cells, in hopes that the cancer curing isotopes could be generated on site at hospitals and save lives. Taylor later harnesses his discoveries as an alarm system to root out dirty bombs in shipping containers. He becomes the youngest ever to achieve nuclear fusion.
