A prime number is a lonely thing. It can be divided only by itself or by one; it never truly fits with another. Alice and Mattia are both “primes” – misfits who seem destined to be alone.
They are haunted by the childhood tragedies that mark their lives – a physical handicap due to a ski accident for Alice and the loss of a twin sister for Mattia – and find themselves unable to reach out to anyone else. When the two meet as teenagers, they recognize in each other a kindred, damaged spirit.
As they grow into adulthood, their destinies seem irrevocably intertwined. But when the scientifically gifted Mattia accepts a research position that takes him thousands of miles away the two are forced to separate with many things left unsaid. A chance encounter will reunite them and force a lifetime of concealed emotions to the surface, but the question remains: Can two prime numbers ever find a way to be together?
“The Solitude of Prime Numbers” is a meditation on loneliness, love and the weight of childhood experience.
