John Nash is a Princeton University student. He is brilliant on his age. Everybody blissful in his talent and unbelievable knowledge. In his stay in the dormitory he got his roommate Charles, a literature student, greets him as he moves in and soon becomes his best friend. Nash also meets a group of other promising math and science graduate students, Martin Hansen, Sol, Ainsley, and Bender, with whom he strikes up an awkward friendship. Nash admits to Charles that he is better with numbers than people, which comes as no surprise to them after watching his largely unsuccessful attempts at conversation with the women at the local bar. There has been a great depression as John Nash, while studying, invited by Martin Hansen to play a board game. John Nash is so confident to win but his loss gave him a great depression that pursues him to study more to be alone, not to eat and ignore everybody. It appears that only Charles can make feel him better Nash is seeking a truly original idea for his thesis paper, and he is under increasing pressure to develop his thesis so he can begin work. A particularly harsh rejection from a woman at the bar is what ultimately inspires his fruitful work in the concept of governing dynamics, a theory in mathematical economics. After the conclusion of Nash studies as a student at Princeton, he accepts a prestigious appointment at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), along with his friends Sol and Bender. Five years later while teaching a class on Calculus at MIT, he places a particularly interesting problem on the chalkboard that he dares his students to solve. When his student Alicia Larde comes to his office to discuss the problem, the two falls in love and eventually marry.
On a return visit to Princeton, Nash runs into his former roommate Charles and meets Charles young niece Marcee, whom he meet that time and adore her very much.

Though Nash still suffers from hallucinations and mentions taking newer medications. stroking her hair and calling her "baby girl".
