Quod Erat Demonstrandum

1984. A mathematician’s decision to publish a paper in a magazine edited by an American university without asking for permission from the Communist authorities triggers a chain of events that will change the lives of his friends. After all, there is no such thing as decisions without consequences … “In any type of society there’s a constraint. Constraint generates compromise that we either accept or not. Betrayal, as a particular form of compromise, is not borne by a certain society. Anytime, anywhere, a person wants a better life for him and his family. But at what cost? Careers, feelings, freedom, everything is at stake …” (Andrei Gruzsniczki)
