Catherine has either inherited the genius or the madness of her Father.  On the night before her twenty-fifth birthday she will challenge his legacy and search for her own identity while her estranged sister and Father’s former student pull her in opposing directions.  Proof is a story of identity, the power of sacrifice, and the fine line between extreme intelligence and mental illness.
