True love is possible. This is what Romanian sociology professor Nicolae Dumitru preaches to his students. But how does one reach it? The professor has developed his own theory, based on scientific research and on his predictions for the future. However, in his private life, things often took a different direction and his theory has not always been useful. Every failure in his marriages affected also the size of his apartment which got smaller and smaller with each divorce. When he finally encounters true love, his theory seems to come true… until life takes its own course again. “Noosfera” is a portrait of a man who never gave up and never ceases to search for perfect love and understanding.
