This documentary film follows eight elder women as they rehearse for an unlikely stage presentation about two great physicists - Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. The women are directed by 80 year-old Len Barron who delightfully leads the women through the rehearsal process. After twenty years of performing a one-person show about the scientists, Barron decides it would be quite a twist to have eight grandmothers present his material instead. Indeed, the women spin the tales of Einstein and Bohr with grace, depth, and wit!
The eight grandmothers, each with her own perspective and background, give vivid expression to the personal lives of the scientists in this delightful presentation. Their stories and experiences remind us that one doesn't need to be a genius to be fair, or playful, or to do things beautifully.
