Can a broken heart really break you?
Is string theory the answer to everything?

Sophie Sophia is obsessed with music from the eighties. She also sees marching band pandas, plays guitar with The Cure and has an eccentric physicist father who vanishes for days and sees things other people don’t see. But when he disappears for good – and she moves from Brooklyn to Illinois – things take a turn for the weird. Sophie starts seeing things, just like her dad.

Guided by Walt, her giant shaman panda, Finny, her best friend/boy genius and Drew, a Kerouac-loving bookworm, Sophie decides to find her father and figure out her visions, once and for all. Armed with her trusty Walkman and friends, she travels back to where it all began – New York City and NYU’s physics department. As she discovers more about her Dad’s research on string theory, alternate universes and her father, himself, Sophie opens her eyes – and her heart – to the world’s infinite possibilities.
