This British romantic drama skewers ivory tower dwellers. It centers on Paul, an American researcher who comes to Oxford with his wife Claire to further their careers. Paul is determined to solve the puzzle of wave particle duality that obsessed Einstein. Claire busily researches her anthropology doctoral thesis. She tries to get Paul to take interest in her and her work, but he is obsessed with his own work and neglects Claire resulting in constant marital turmoil. Things get worse for Paul when the newly appointed department chairman curtails his research funding. To find comfort, he turns to his lovely young assistant, Lucy, who just happens the new department head's daughter. Not long afterward, Paul learns that his research grant is to be canceled and so rallies with an inspirational speech.
