The film details the unconventional life of William Marston, the psychologist and inventor at Harvard who helped invent the modern detector test and created Wonder Woman in 1941.
The film focuses on how Marston handled the controversy surrounding Wonder Woman’s creation. Marston was in a polymorphic relationship with his wife Elizabeth, a psychologist and inventor, and Olive Byrne, a former student who became an academician. This relationship was essential to creating a wonderful woman, while the feminist ideals of Elizabeth and Olive were rooted in the character of creation.
The two women certified in psychology defied the convention, building a secret life together with Marston, who rivaled the best superhearted disguise. In 1947 Marston died of skin cancer, but Elizabeth and Olive remained a couple and raised their children and Marston together.
