After applying both unending hours of work and scientific acumen, Dr. Natalie Lobova is on track to be the fourth female Nobel Prize-winning physicist for the discovery of new atomic elements in the cosmos. In her sleepy Oregon lakeside town, it seems there is very little to distract her from achieving her goal. That is until James Oliver moves in next door—A business consultant undergoing a crippling existential crisis, and barely enduring his self-imposed rehab regimen after coming off a two-year bender, shows up mysteriously in the middle of Nowhere, Oregon. This stranger with a chaotic past proves to be a worthy, albeit dangerous distraction for the woman on the path to making history.
Nat and James is a character drama about existentialism and modern science, feminism and the obsession, paranoia, and madness of love and scientific fame. It’s a story in which the search for self is as profound as the search for an atom.
