Storyline

Serbian born Nicola Tesla immigrates to the U.S. in the early 1880s and begins working for Thomas Edison. What begins as a warm professional relationship turns into a fierce, hostile rivalry when Tesla quits Edison after feeling he has been unfairly compensated for designing improvements to the company’s inefficient motor and generators designs. Their rivalry forms the basis for the"current wars" in the 1880s and 1890s, as Edison is a proponent of direct current, while Tesla advocates for alternating current transmission of electricity.
