SCRIPT

1861, England. A couple of years after the publication of On the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin’s nephew, a young and ambitious barrister seeking professional recognition, manages to convince his uncle that the scientist and colleague of Darwin’s Alfred Russel Wallace intends to explain to the world how he alone fathered the theory of evolution. The young barrister tampers with the reports on Wallace’s conferences on the subject so that Darwin finally agrees to sue his old fellow scientist, on the grounds of plagiarism. As the trial unfolds, it draws much more attention than the young barrister had initially expected...
