    • Synopsis
    • Based on an award-winning novel by Matt Cohen, Emotional Arithmetic charts the fateful reunion, in the eighties, of three survivors of the notorious French "transit" camp, Drancy. Melanie, an unhappy wife obsessed with record-keeping, Jakob, a poet and the ultimate survivor, and Christopher, a shy academic who has repressed both his memories and his childhood love for Melanie, meet and feast on a fall evening on an idyllic farm property. Memories and feelings emerge, reshape, collide during a night of conflict, sadness and ultimately, healing.
