Summary

Brilliant, visionary Nikola Tesla fights an uphill battle to bring his revolutionary electrical system to fruition, then faces thornier challenges with his new system for worldwide wireless energy. Tesla's uneasy interactions with his fellow inventor Thomas Edison and his patron George Westinghouse are in sharp contrast to his sidewinding appeal to financial titan J.P. Morgan. Meanwhile, Morgan's daughter Anne takes a more than casual interest in the inventor. Anne analyzes and presents Tesla's story as it unfolds, offering a distinctly modern voice to this exhilarating, offbeat drama which, like its subject, defies convention.
