Inspired by the original ‘mad scientist’ Nikolai Tesla, who had no children of his own, these inventors toil away in anonymous basements and garages, building moonbeam collectors, levitation devices and bone-regeneration machines. At great personal and professional cost, these scientists think big and dream even bigger.
This documentary opens our eyes to the fact that out of the box geniuses exist all over the world. These brilliant and often ridiculed inventors allow us inside their world. We see their inventions, experience their passion and unwavering belief in their ground-breaking pursuits.
Tesla's Children reveal to the viewer how pursuit of even the most outrageous ideas can alter our understanding of the world. These mavericks are not only changing the existing scientific paradigm, they are overturning it.
