Based on true events, this is the tale of an inventor with amazing perseverance . . .
Based on the true story of inventor Robert Kearns, this is the tale of a man whose fight for recognition comes at a heavy price. Set in 1960s Detroit, Kearns invents the intermittent windshield wiper only to have the idea stolen by Ford.
Buried in years of litigation, Kearns is determined to have his work acknowledged by those who stood to benefit. While paying a toll for refusing to compromise his dignity, this everyday David tries the unthinkable: to bring Goliath to his knees.
