The Terrible Guest
(Based on a True Story)
On trial for murder, eccentric
genius Eadweard Muybridge must escape justice with the help of the Governor of
California in order to invent motion pictures.
Muybridge is an eccentric genius and a jealous husband. On the eve
of his greatest invention, he shoots his wife's lover through the heart in cold
blood. Only an acquittal with the help of the Governor of California, who
has a $50,000 wager riding on Eadweard's ability to prove horses can fly - will
ensure the birth of motion pictures.
