The documentary by physicist-turned-director Mark Levinson follows the laugh of the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland – a project that marks the beginning of humanity’s biggest, most expensive experiment to date, which challenges the limits of human innovation. The project included around 10,000 scientists of 100 nationalities, who worked on the enormous machine located 50 meters underground and boasts a circumference of seventeen kilometers. The film tells the story of six genius scientists out of those 10,000, on their way to discover the secrets of the universe.
