Robert Oppenheimer, known today as the ‘father of the atomic bomb,’ was close to completing their mission.  In an imagined world of what might have been, Oppenheimer receives a surprise visit from an old friend.  Find out what happens in this imagined conversation between two of the greatest minds of the 20th century, in history’s most fateful meeting that never happened.
