An apple falls down from a tree. Hence, Newton learns the principles of gravitation. Scientific thinking depends on rational modeling: on an understandable relationship be - tween cause and effect. Four stories dealing with the dialectics of enlightenment, with the randomness of love, birth and death. Aleks participates in an experiment facing civil war in former Yugoslavia. Sarah tries to escape loneliness by in - vestigating a murder. Bastian has to deal with his father’s decision to die. Anna dances with a foreign man. How destructive is the unlimited search for insight? Should one lie in order to protect a loved one, who’ll be destroyed by truth?
