Sorin, a gifted mathematician, doesn’t like obeying rules. His academic career has been thwarted because he refused to become a member of the Communist Party. While his research, which deals with pure mathematics, is apolitical, he is persecuted by the regime from the day he sends an academic article for publication in the US. His friend Elena, who wishes to join her husband, an academic who left Romania and never returned, likewise suffers persecution by the regime. Alecu, the Securitate investigator in charge of their files, is also frustrated because he hasn’t been promoted. Andrei Gruzsniczki offers a stylized black-and-white drama that takes us back to Romania of the 1980s and gives a glimpse of the persecution academics experienced during the communist era.

Roumanie, 1984. Un mathématicien décide de publier un article dans une revue éditée par une université américaine sans demander la permission des autorités. Cette décision déclenche une chaîne d'événements qui vont bousculer la vie de ses amis. Il devient clair que dans ce monde toute décision peut avoir des conséquences lourdes et inattendues. Un drame en noir et blanc stylisé qui nous plonge dans la Roumanie des années 1980 et donne une idée de ce que pouvaient être les persécutions sous le régime communiste.
