Synopsis by Nathan Southern

This biographical documentary traces the astonishing life and career of physicist, philosopher and author Albert Einstein, an individual widely regarded as one of the most intelligent of the 20th Century. Beginning with his birth (in 1879, in Ulm, in the Kingdom of Wurttemberg, German Empire), it discusses such subsequent events as Einstein's development of the theory of general relativity (and the concept of bent starlight that it spawned), Einstein's immigration to the U.S. in light of the Nazi threat, his involvement in a letter warning Franklin Delano Roosevelt that Nazi Germany might be developing an atomic bomb, and much more.
