True love is possible. This is what the Romanian sociology professor Nicolae Dumitru preaches to his students. But how can we achieve it? The professor has developed his own theory, based on scientific research and on his predictions for the future. However in his private life, things often went in a different direction, and his theory has not always been useful. Every failure in his marriages also affected the size of his apartment, which got smaller and smaller with each divorce. When he finally encounters true love, his theory seems to come true… until life takes its own course again. Noosfera is a portrait of a man who never gave up, and continues to search for perfect love and understanding.
