Will Hunting is only twenty years old, but already stands out in his rough, working-class neighborhood in South Boston. He's never been to college, except to scrub floors as a janitor at MIT. Yet he can summon obscure historical references from a photographic memory and almost instantiy solve math problems that frustrate Nobel Prize-winning professors. The one thing he can't do after his latest bar fight — is talk his way out of a pending jail sentence. His only hope is Sean McGuire, a college professor-turned-therapist with an admiration for his emotional struggles and a keen understanding of what it's like to fight your way through life.
