Electricity titans Thomas Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon) engage in a battle of technology and ideas that will determine whose electrical system will power the modern world. Backed by J.P. Morgan, Edison dazzles the world by lighting Manhattan. But Westinghouse, aided by the brain power of Nikola Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), sees fatal flaws in Edison's direct current design. Westinghouse and Tesla bet everything on risky and dangerous alternative of the alternating current.
