Augustin is a 30-year-old university professor. He does not believe in religion. His only belief is in maths, to which he devotes all his time. Then suddenly a series of pressing existential questions start looming in his mind: what is the meaning of life? Is there a god? What is there after death? So he begins a spiritual search that will push him to the edge of sanity.
