Most people have experienced chance events that seem to be more than mere coincidence. Experiences that are so powerful that they even give people a sense of direction or purpose in their life.

Analytical psychologist Carl Gustav Jung called this type of striking coincidence ‘synchronicity’. In this sensitive and thought-provoking documentary, Dutch filmmaker Jan Diederen portrays French quantum physicist François Martin and his relationship with synchronicity, showing Martin’s transformation from hard-core physicist to someone who embraces synchronicity as an enriching gift.

Martin’s gradual unpacking of the underlying interconnectedness between things is interspersed with amazing stories of coincidences from France, Finland and the UK, creating a film which invites viewers to open themselves up to the unexpected, to the delight of synchronicity.
