The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time tells the story of Christopher Boone, who is 15 years old, suffers from Asperger syndrome, and is a mathematical genius.

When Christopher finds a dead dog on his street, he becomes intent on playing detective to the unsolved crime.

Audiences will watch as he records facts in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered the dog, and see how his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
