In 1896, Mitza Maric travels from Serbia to Switzerland to attend Zurich Polytechnic. She's determined to be one of the first women in the world to earn a degree in physics. Albert Einstein also attends the university, and a relationship ensues. Mozhan Marno deftly performs Mitza's feelings, which range from uncertainty to determination in the male-dominated world of math and science, and to joy when she falls in love with Albert. Marno's steady pacing keeps the listener engaged even when the story bogs down as Mitza allows Albert to treat her poorly year after year. Although this is a work of fiction, the story references some of Einstein's contributions to physics, such as the effects of energy and friction when two strong forces are in close proximity.
