Gifted – Frank, a single man raising his child prodigy niece Mary, is drawn into a custody battle with his mother. Frank’s estranged mother and Mary’s maternal-grandmother, Evelyn, seeks to gain custody of Mary and move her to Massachusetts, believing that Mary is a “one-in-a-billion” mathematical prodigy who should be specially tutored in preparation for a life devoted to mathematics. However, Frank is adamant that his sister would want Mary to be in a normal public school and have the childhood she didn’t have. Worried that the judge will rule against him and he will lose Mary completely, Frank accepts a compromise brokered by his lawyer, Greg Cullen, that sees Mary placed in foster care and attend the private school where Evelyn wanted to have her enrolled. The foster parents live just 25 minutes from Frank’s home, and Mary will be able to decide where she wants to live after her 12th birthday.
