I will attempt to give an entertaining talk about several important open problems in number theory and try to show that a cohesive program exists to solve these problems. You will see several mysteries about the distribution of prime numbers and see early astounding results which still remain the state-of-the-art and also some recent progress. At the end of the talk, hopefully, you will have a sense for the important problems in number theory, why they are important and how people are attempting to solve them.
