Newly minted Ph.D.'s from around the world vie for and win fellowships to study at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. The scientists there are in search of the Higgs boson, the so-call 'God Particle'. But one new candidate has a secret, and perhaps sinister agenda that could affect the world.

While most scientists are in search of "The Higgs", one has a secret agenda. Backed by a sinister political group, this lone physicist intends to use the "Super Collider" to isolate a unique particle that may enable her to travel through time.
