The Theory of Everything

The Theory of Everything Information

Theory of Everything is a 2006 drama film basing on the book with the same name of Ken Wilber.


The film starts with the young enterpreneur Doug (David de Vos) that is a flight instructor and owner of a pilot school. He is married with Abby and has two girls, Lindsay (Janna Savatchee) and Amanda (Amanda de Vos). He has serious financial problems, being near to finanancial ruin, and needs $300,000 to expand the pilot school to what he dream of. He has to work hard and has hardly any time for his family. Even on Christmas Eve, he comes late at home, where his parents and his family is waiting.

The viewer learns through a phone call during the meal that his parents are not his actual parents, but that he was adopted by an open adoption by them. On the phone, a lawyer askes him to come to a meeting, where problems concerning his real father are to be discussed.

The lawyer introduces him to his half sister, Delilah (Mary Jo DuPrey), which was dismissed twice from his father. Her only interest is to incapacitate his father and sell his property, a house with garden. The lawyer askes whether they want to look after the property and the man. If they would, they would also take responsibility of him. Doug decides to do so without asking Abby.

He drives to his real father, Dr. Gene Holland, who receives his visit with a gun in his hand, shooting at him. But he seems to be distracted, but remembers his son Doug. The house is the perfect chaos, but Gene seems not to be aware of it. His only interest seems to be to find the solution for the Theory of everything – a mission of his own to prove the Holy Grail of physics, the Theory of Everything, that may prove the existence of God. Doug tells him about his financial problems, and Gene wants to help him. They make up a financial plan and find investors that give Doug the necessary capital.

While they are celebrating this success, Gene fall to ground and is moved to the hospital. There, Doug is informed by a doctor who knows Gene very well that Gene has serious health problems, having the seldom illness called CFJ, where a prion is distroying the brain.

Telling the whole story to Abby, they decide to move to him, as Doug knows that his father will decease within six months to a year. Gene is proud of Doug, Dougs wife and grandchildren. He tells the whole family about Dougs mother, who Gene loved so much, but who died because of cancer. The reason why Gene gave Doug to adoption was that his wife would have lived, if she had undergone radio therapy. But she rather decided to give birth to Doug and "go to Jesus".

The illness halts the studies, when the daughter of him manages to get a verdict that incapacitates Gene. The house is destroyed immediately after the police takes him out of the house and puts him in a hospital.

Doug could salvage the whole work of Gene in boxes and brings them to the hospital, as Gene sees Doug as the "last hope", who would help him to finish his work. There, they go through the theory, until Gene again losed his consciousness.

Some time later, Doug sees Gene in the garden of the hospital. Gene can barely remember Doug. He knows that he was searching for something, but has forgotten what it was. Doug decides to abduct his biological father with the help of Abby and bring him with his private plane to Alaska, where he can see the aurora borealis. At this moment, Gene says that he no more fears the death. He lost the fear of it like his wife, who died without being afraid of the death. He thinks that he found the path to Jesus and his wife Lory.


The Dove Worldview wrote that this film is a powerful film that works because of the great chemistry between the father and son and converts his father to Christianity.
