This documentary follows modern physicists to find out whether Einstein's theory of relativity—as it passes its 100th birthday—stands the test of time.

Einstein’s vision of gravity has shaped our understanding of the universe for 100 years. Following Nobel Laureates and 6 other physicists, CHASING EINSTEIN travels to the LIGO gravity wave detector, the CERN particle accelerator, the underground XENON lab, and telescopes probing the mysteries of Einstein's paradigm. Will his theory stand the test of time, or will a controversial new theory rewrite the textbooks?
