    Brief synopsis

    Documentary about the Serb-American inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) who invented the AC (Alternating Current) system and the radio. His world-wide wireless system anticipated our modern global communications network, like the Internet. Nikola Tesla's life is like a thriller about science, money, and power. Tesla is a character of worldwide significance worth to be rediscovered as the inventor of modern times.
