Synopsis: 15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is an exceptional mathematician but struggles to interact in a social setting. Because of his inability to interact well with others, he stays isolated, never venturing alone beyond the end of his road. He shies away from human contact, and is wary of strangers. Seven minutes after midnight, Christopher stands next to Wellington, the neighbor’s dog, speared with a garden fork. Dead. As a person of interest in the case, Christopher now has to stretch beyond his comfortable boundaries to answer intrusive and nagging questions. However, like a young Sherlock Holmes, he is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. Going against his overprotective father’s wishes, the case takes Christopher on a thrilling journey of self-discovery that upturns his world.
