In wartime 1941, German atomic physicist Werner Heisenberg traveled to Nazi-occupied Copenhagen to see his old friend and mentor, renowned Danish physicist Niels Bohr. Side by side, almost as father and son, Bohr and Heisenberg revolutionized nuclear science in the 1920s, but they had since been pulled apart as they found themselves on opposite sides of a World War. Why did Heisenberg meet with Bohr in the middle of the war?

COPENHAGEN allows Heisenberg and Bohr, along with Bohr’s wife Margrethe, to reunite beyond time and explore what happened or didn’t happen at that meeting, as they wrestle with the powerful yet often uncertain bonds of country, conscience, love and loss in a world whose very core is on the verge of being split apart.
