Berlin during the 1930s. A young engineer sits at a desk, exasperated beyond measure by the time-consuming calculations before him. Suddenly he has a vision and quits his job. He doesn’t have a lot of money, but with the help of his parents and friends, he builds a revolutionary machine, later to be called a computer. Follow the trail of Konrad Zuse, the inventor of the computer, and delve into his life and thoughts, discover the conditions that prevailed in his “workshop” and the fact that he almost became an advertising artist instead of inventing the computer.
