Nolan is a brash, contentious astrophysics student who just happens to have been blind since birth. Through a combination of hubris, talent and intelligence he is able to discover what is the pinnacle of his short career – the mysterious space object K-Galt-3, seemingly undetected as it hurdles towards Earth at incredible speeds. It is these same traits that have isolated Nolan his entire life, focusing on the stars above rather than what he considers the meaningless humanity that surrounds him. Late one night in his lab as he tracks the object, he has an intense vision. The experience shakes Nolan to his core as he begins to discover what it truly means to connect to another human being for the first time in his life.
