About this show

In 1997 in the conflict-torn Balkans, an American student arrives in Yugoslavia to research the life of Nikola Tesla, the Croatian-born Serbian scientist who immigrated to the United States in 1884 and, although lost in the wake of Thomas Edison's fame, gave the world electricity as we use it today. Intent on her own work, she isn't ready for the world of turmoil and suffering that greets her and, ultimately, forces her to decide if and how she should get involved. Ideas about war and peace, the uses of science and the exercise of humanity reverberate in this witty, suspenseful, intellectual puzzle of a drama.
