Plot synopsis
Summer school on the beach might seem like a recipe for fun, but a young physics teacher struggles with finding his place as his quantum approach to the world baffles and sometimes insults his peers and students.
Konstantin, a young physicist, is assigned to teach at a seaside institute where the students yearn to let loose and treat the academic centre and its surroundings as a glorified summer camp. The introverted scientist, who has dedicated his life to his studies, grows increasingly frustrated with those around him, finding that his quantum approach to the world clashes with the interests of his peers and students. His mind is in a constant loop of theorems, which further isolates him as he struggles to fit in and keep the chaos of the dorms to a minimum. In his attempts to conceptualize the larger questions of the universe, Konstantin fails to comprehend the direct connections in the world around him. Strange Particles offers us the notion of a quantum man—seemingly both here and not—navigating a world that he may not be suited for. Gabor Pertic
