Sharp, dramatic, and full of insider dish, Sophia of Silicon Valley is one woman's story of a career storming the corridors of geek power and living in the shadow of its outrageous cast of maestros
During the heady years of the tech boom, incorrigibly frank Sophia Young lucks into a job that puts her directly in the path of Scott Kraft, the eccentric CEO of Treehouse, a studio whose animated films were transforming Hollywood forever. Overnight, Sophia becomes the unlikely nerd whisperer. Whether her success is due to dumb luck, her savage assertiveness, her insightful finesse (learned from dealing with her irrational Taiwanese immigrant mother), or a combination of all three-Sophia's rarified position allows her, finally, to truly shine.
As Scott Kraft's right-hand woman, whip-smart Sophia is at the center of a maelstrom, sometimes floundering, sometimes risking relationships and her health, but ultimately learning what it means to take charge of her own future, the way the men around her do. But when engineer/inventor Andre Stark hires her to head his company's investor relations department, Sophia discovers that the big paycheck and high-status career she's created for herself may not be worth having to endure the toxic environment of a boys' club gone bad.
