Neeli Cherkovskiís Albert Einstein emerges as the first Jewish Super-Hero. To become mythic Einstein scrambles poetically through time and space, exploring light, gravity, and the realities of existence. Never losing hope, he toys with the Devil as his equations deliver the atomic bomb, and he dares to spar with God as he supposes that the Creator would be constrained by the universal laws of physics which govern the material world. Science and religion will never be the same.
