    Princeton University, 1980. A young and unambitious librarian named Anna Roth is assigned the task of retrieving the records of Kurt Gödel - the most fascinating and hermetic mathematician of the 20th century. Her mission consists of befriending and ultimately taming the greatman's widow, Adele, a notoriously bitter woman set on taking belated revenge against the establishment by refusing to hand over these documents of immeasurable historical value.

    Anna Roth, jeune documentaliste à Princeton, a une mission : rencontrer Adèle, la veuve de Kurt Gödel, l'un des plus grands mathématiciens du XXe siècle, afin de récupérer les documents laissés par le grand mathématicien. Par petites touches, Adèle dévoile peu à peu l'histoire d'amour improbable, l'horreur nazie, le génie et les folies de son mari Kurt Gödel.
