Film Presentation:
Iubirea adevarata este posibila. Asta le spune profesorul de sociologie Nicolae Dumitru studentilor sai. Dar cum poate fi gasita? Profesorul si-a dezvoltat propria teorie, bazata pe cercetare stiintifica si pe propriile predictii asupra viitorului. Cu toate acestea, in viata lui particulara, lucrurile au luat adesea o turnura diferita si teoria lui nu a fost intotdeauna de ajutor. Fiecare esec din casnicii i-au afectat si marimea apartamentului in care locuieste, acesta micsorandu-se cu fiecare divort. Cand, in cele din urma, profesorul intalneste dragostea adevarata, teoria lui pare a se adeveri... pana cand viata isi spune din nou cuvantul.
