[In the history of science, Laplace's demon was the first published articulation of causal or scientific determinism, by Pierre-Simon Laplace in 1814]
A glass in free fall... Have you ever thought if it is possible to calculate into how many pieces it can shatter? After numerous experiments, a team of researchers succeeds in doing just this apparently impossible task.
Attracted to their experiment, a mysterious professor invites the scientists to his isolated mansion to learn more about their studies. However, when they arrive, they are not greeted by their host, but are faced with a strange model of the mansion, in which their actions are incredibly reflected, set to lead to their doom.
The researchers will soon understand that they are involved in a new experiment, in which they’ll have to play a very different role than usual: that of the glass in free fall.
Starring Alessandro Zonfrilli, Carlotta Mazzoncini, Duccio Giulivi, Ferdinando D'Urbano, Silvano Bertolin, Simone Moscato, Simone Valeri, Walter Smorti
Written by Duccio Giulivi, Giordano Giulivi
