what going on?
The young adult to middle aged life of Stephen Hawking is dramatized. This phase of his story begins in 1963, when, as a Ph.D. candidate in Physics, he is enjoying all that life at Cambridge has to offer. Beyond his studies, that enjoyment of life primarily entails a relationship with a liberal arts student named Jane Wilde. His life takes a major turn when he is diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease, which will ultimately kill him, the expectation within two years, as all his voluntary motor functions – including his ability to speak, swallow and therefore eat, and breathe – will fail. Against his initial want for Jane to leave him, she stands by his side ultimately to become Jane Hawking. The diagnosis places time constraints on what he wants to accomplish, completing his Ph.D. dissertation on a revolutionary idea on the creation of the universe chief among them. But as the effects of the disease progress more slowly than anticipated, he and Jane begin to think more holistically about his life, including furthering his work to probe into developing a theory behind how everything in the universe operates. Jane is by Stephen’s side doing whatever she can to make his life more holistically fulfilling, but she also cannot do this alone nor does she want solely to be known as Stephen’s caregiver without a life or identity of her own.
