The narrator tells how Nikola Tesla, saw electricity when petting his cat. In 1884 New York City, adult Nikola Tesla (Ethan Hawke) is working for Thomas Edison (Kyle MacLachlan), who doesn’t seem to regard Tesla highly. He is told by a coworker that it may be because Edison’s wife had just died. They get into a work confrontation and smash ice cream cones in each other’s faces.

The narrator revealed to be Anne Morgan (Eve Hewson), appears with a laptop, saying that this probably is not how this happened. She tells when you Google Tesla, you only find a couple of photos, and proceeds to tell more about his past and how he had his first flash of the motor he would invent. She notes when you google Edison, you get twice the results.

The narrator explains his previous troubles and financial poverty until he is finally able to pitch his idea to people who will pay him more than Edison. The narrator tells how Edison meets his second wife Mina (Hannah Gross) in 1885. Tesla continues work on his induction motor, assisted by his friend Anthony Szigeti from Budapest (Ebon Moss-Bachrach).
