The Most Intelligent Man in History

The psychiatrist Marco Polo is a respected scientist, expert in the works of the mind and author of the first global program of emotional management.

When he goes to Jerusalem to attend a meeting at the UN, the doctor is challenged to study the intelligence of the most famous man in history: Jesus. However, Marco Polo is a remarkable atheist and refuses to do it. Still, the audience of intellectuals, eager to hear from him, abets Marco to this enterprise.  After much resistance, Marco Polo accepts the challenge. He puts together a round-table comprising brilliant professionals to analyze the mind of Jesus under the lens of science, not religion.
