Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brain science institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? This is 'the hard problem' which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the MRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask? Meanwhile Hilary needs a miracle, and she is prepared to pray for one.

The Hard Problem will screen on Wednesday, June 3 at 2pm and 7pm at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Tickets to National Theatre Live screenings are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors, and $12 for students.
