Four engineers, one problem: How to find the right woman in real life? Love & Engineering follows four desperate geeks around thirty looking for analogue love.
Disconnected in normal social life, they are participating in a course mentored by Atanas, also a digital geek and a Bulgarian mathematician, who wants to help the
others in the name of science. On the basis of his own experiences he is trying to structure a (pseudo) scientific formula of love and dating. The film follows Todor, Tuomas, Joost and Andon on their efforts to find the way into real life – involving their expectations, hopes, disappointments and frustrations. A film about true love in times of discarnate communication.
