The story of Curt Herzstark, a concentration camp prisoner who was kept alive by the Nazis because he was rumored to have invented the world’s first hand-held four function calculator—a great prize if it could be re-created. Caught between the thrill of technological discovery and the fear of rendering himself obsolete if he produces a working device, Curt’s survival plan takes a turn when the Nazis introduce him to a wunderkind Hitler Youth with a soul that might be salvageable.
