QuoteWhat happens at the centre black holes? What happened before the big bang? A quantum theory of gravity is needed to answer these questions . Many of the leading scientists who developed Loop Quantum Gravity,  one of the most promising attempts, tell the story of how it was developed in this film. We also go on to explore how the theory may be tested via observations of black holes or probing the very early universe. We interview Carlo Rovelli, Lee Smolin, Abhay Ashtekar, Sir Roger Penrose, AurĂ©lien Barrau and Francesca Vidotto.  The film  tackle some of the biggest questions of existence.
"Some say God is living there [in space]. I was looking around very attentively, but I did not see anyone there. I did not detect either angels or gods....I don't believe in God. I believe in man - his strength, his possibilities, his reason."
