10-year-old T.S. Spivet (Kyle Catlett) is gifted – a talented artist as well as an enthusiastic hobby scientist. He lives with his family on a remote ranch in rural Montana. But when the distinguished Smithsonian Museum unexpectedly invites him to Washington D.C. to collect the prestigious Baird Prize, he runs away one night to make his way to the faraway capital.
Stowing away on a goods train, he undergoes many adventures as he crosses the USA. But in Washington no-one knows that the prizewinner is only 10 years old, or that he harbors a tragic secret.
Based on the bestselling book of the same name by American author Reif Larsen, THE YOUNG AND PRODIGIOUS T.S. SPIVET depicts with breathtaking imagery a journey through the eyes of T.S. Spivet, a young boy whose world is just as wonderful as it is lonely.
