Plot – The story of "Gifted" starts in a small town near Tampa, FL, where the young Mary Adler is raised by her uncle, Frank, who took care of his sister's daughter after her death. When Mary is 7 years old, she shows an incredible ability with numbers and math, and even if she's still very young, she's able to solve complex and advanced equations by herself, arousing the curiosity of the teachers and of the school principal. Her grandmother Evelyn wants her grand-daughter to receive a better education in Massachusetts, in an academic environment and with a team of specialists. Frank, though, who is trying to respect the promise he made to Mary's mom before she died, that her daughter would live a happy childhood in a public school, almost loses the foster care.
