Copenhagen is an engaging adaptation of the popular Michael Frayn stage-play based around a strange trip the German physicist Werner Heisenberg made to Copenhagen in 1941 to see his Danish counterpart Niels Bohr.

Old friends and close colleagues, they had revolutionised atomic physics in the 1920s with their work together. But now the world had changed and Heisenberg and Bohr found themselves on opposite sides in a world war. The meeting was fraught with danger, embarrassment and ended in disaster.

In Frayn's play Copenhagen, Heisenberg meets Bohr and his wife Margrethe once again to look for the answers and to work out how we can ever know why we do what we do.
