The story of Thomas Edison in his youth, when he brought one of the greatest and most important inventions of the 19th century- the one responsible for the existence of the telegraph and electric light. Edison was raised in a small town in the United States, was known as a peculiar boy, unable to conform to the expectations of his society, his family and his school. He continually questioned events that could not be explained, and obsessively conducted dangerous scientific experiments which nearly resulted in tragic consequences and the anger of his father – who had to compensate for the damages caused .But when his best friend required emergency surgery, and it was impossible to operate in the dark, Thomas found the solution, bringing light to his home, and to the world.
