The politician behind the
president wants to drop it...



In the dramatic and fateful confrontation between
Einstein's protege,
Leo Szilard, and Truman's mentor, Jimmy Byrnes, science battles politics in the timeless struggle against the corruption of human ingenuity.

Redemption, salvation, catastrophe, and hope itself are the stakes as one man's logic and reason clash with another's pure human emotion. But which is which?

Does history repeat because science and politics
speak different languages? Do good and evil have
a place in the course of "inevitable" events?
