"We’ve got ninety-nine per cent the same genes as any other person. We’ve got ninety per cent the same as a chimpanzee. We’ve got thirty percent the same as a lettuce. Does that cheer you up at all? I love about the lettuce. It makes me feel I belong."

A number is a futuristic tragic fiction, both cathartic and humorous.

Two years after the death of his wife, Salter, father to their four year old son, makes the radical decision to restart his life as a father. In the world of A Number, scientists are able to duplicate life. Salter, wishing to handle and manage fatherhood with more ease and comfort, gets involved in the cloning procedure. Thirty five years later, the past resurfaces and comes to shake up the relations between father and sonS. Fortunately this time the future also rises, by definition without memory, therefore simple and mostly… happy.

In this dystopian universe, human absurdity provokes as much of a shiver as it does of a laughter.
