Each year, exceptionally gifted teenagers from over 90 countries compete for medals at the International Mathematical Olympiad. Beautiful Young Minds follows a group of young British mathematicians in their quest to compete at the 2006 IMO in Slovenia.
For some of these young mathematicians, their gift has left them ostracised at school. Others on the autistic spectrum find socialising and confidence issues hinder their everyday lives. However, Beautiful Young Minds shows these young geniuses in their element, enjoying the subject they love and ultimately being celebrated, as they deserve.
