This compelling documentary charts the life and career of entrepreneurial engineer George Westinghouse, a creative giant of his time who built an electricity empire and made a fortune by developing a system for alternating-current power distribution. In addition to being the inventor of the air brake, Westinghouse -- one of Thomas Edison's chief rivals -- was a kind, generous businessman who made it his goal to treat his workers well.
