ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – What is our legacy when we pass on? “Proof” explores the struggles of Catherine, the daughter of a brilliant but mentally disturbed mathematician. Preparing for his funeral, Catherine tries to come to grips with her possible inheritance – his insanity or his genius. “Proof” is a story of human relationships and how the uncertainty of love can be just as challenging as the uncertainty of mathematical proof.
