Based on actual events, a Chinese university student responds violently when his chances for a Nobel Prize are dashed by school politics.
In December 2012, the Tuscaloosa News reported that a PhD candidate in Theoretical Particle Physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Alabama was arrested on charges of stalking and making terrorist threats. A deposition filed in Tuscaloosa County District Court said that he sent threatening emails to several UA officials, including the university's president and other administrators; some of the emails included references to this film and implications that the thwarted physics student character's actions in the movie would be a model for a real-life attack at UA.
Still Photographer Matthew Margolin and Additional Still Photographer Tyler Meiners are listed twice during the end credit roll.
