A time-traveling adventure weaves together three personal quests: a wannabe research pioneer absconds with Einstein’s brain; a newlywed fights to hang onto the memory of his love after a botched operation; and a freshly divorced neuroscientist struggles to find hope in the face of cold hard facts.
"Incognito" features four actors giving life to a globe-hopping cast of colorful characters. Says The New York Times, “It feels right that so few should incarnate so many, since one of Mr. Payne’s implicit points here is that we’re all siblings under the skull. That philosophy means you’re likely to identify with every one of these characters, all groping for certain knowledge and all destined to be thwarted.”
