Love & Engineering is a documentary about the incompatibility between women and engineers. In the film we follow Atanas, 34, a Bulgarian mathematician living in Finland, who is – on the basis of his own experiences – trying to structure a (pseudo)scientific formula of love and dating. Atanas keeps mentoring sessions for engineering students encouraging them to date women and giving them guidance how to behave with them. The students date – which we follow also – and return to Atanas who tells them what went wrong or why did they succeed and how they should act in future. And based on this experiment Atanas is trying to formulate his theory.
