When Alberta, the daughter of a mathematician, struggles to comprehend her parents' impending divorce, she invokes her father's hero and her own namesake: Albert Einstein. The unlikely pair visits the past to study the early strains of her parents' marriage via an incident involving an ambiguous traffic light, a cantankerous judge, and a few amiable Texas Rangers. By examining the incident step by step, Einstein helps Alberta accept the uncertainty that lies in all things, whether it be time and space, or the bond between a husband and wife.
