At the heart of truth lies madness...Two months before Hitler's rise to power, a beautiful young woman is found naked and near death in the woods outside Berlin.
When she finally wakes from her coma, she can remember nothing, not even her name.
The only clue to her identity is a handbill found nearby, advertising a public lecture by Albert Einstein: 'On the Present State of Quantum Theory'.
Psychiatrist Martin Kirsch takes the case, little suspecting that this will be his last.
As he searches for the truth about 'the Einstien Girl', professional fascination turns to reckless love.
His investigations lead him to a remote corner of Siberia via a psychiatric hospital in Zurich.
There the inheritor of Einstein's genius - his youngest son, Eduard - is writing a book that will destroy his illustrious father and, in the process, change the world.
