After joining forces with fellow scientist and future husband, Pierre Curie, they take her exploration of radioactivity forward, discovering not one, but two new elements: radium and polonium.

But after a tragic accident Marie must continue to advance her work alone resulting in revolutionary discoveries that have dramatic consequences for the modern world.
