Prime Numbers

by Gianni Skaragas

directed by Fotini Baxevani

 

“Prime Numbers” is a mind-game of deception, a psychological thriller of allegory and symbol, about destiny and revenge, about people who hide their past punished for their choices. A writer (Eddie) struggling with a novel manuscript finds himself somehow mysteriously transported to Tijuana, where a storm traps him with a group of people, who seem eerily similar to the characters he is writing:Professor Oedipus is a math genius who wasted his charisma in gambling; Medea is an Iraqi fugitive, rescued by an American soldier; Julietta is a young pharmacist involved in drug trafficking; Marguerite Gautier is a show-woman has-been; Cain is a paranoid killer of political celebrities. The writer suffers from amnesia and his manuscript is the only “bridge” between the illusory world and the world of reality. He finds out that the five of them are (his) fictional characters. But they, too, know that Eddie is not what he thinks he is. Prime numbers --those special numbers that can only be divided by themselves or the number one-- become a symbol of individuals who strive to define what is right and wrong. Can we change our destiny at someone else’s expense?
