Geneviève et la Théorie du 5
(Genevieve and the Theory of Five)
Six billion people cross paths everyday on this planet without imagining for a
second that their destinies are just five people apart.
On a spring morning like any other, Paul and Genevieve, two perfect strangers, cross paths and it’s love at first sight! They fall head over heals in love, thinking how lucky they are. But they have no idea of the web of events that link their past.
It is indeed an improbable encounter, since these two people, who have nothing in common, would have never met if not for five other people establishing their connection over a period of five decades.
Welcome to the theory of five!
