  • Four 1950s icons meet in the same hotel room and two of them discover more in common between them than they ever anticipated.

  • Four 1950's cultural icons (Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio and Senator Joseph MacCarthy) who conceivably could have met and probably didn't, fictionally do in this modern fable of post-WWII America. Visually intriguing, the film has a fluid progression of flash-backs and flash-forwards centering on the fictional Einstein's current observations, childhood memories and apprehensions for the future.

  • Albert Einstein has come to the city to give a lecture about his work. When he retires to his hotel room later in the evening he has the most unexpected visitor; Marilyn Monroe! And things get more complicated when senator McArthee and her ex-husband show up in the same hotel and the same room...
