Paris, May 29, 1832. In the middle of the night, on the eve of a duel, Évariste Galois, a little older than twenty, handles for the last time a manuscript full of equations and theorems he had written four years earlier. "I have no time! I do not have time!" he frantically wrote in the margins.

A documentary from an original idea and script by Giuseppe Mussardo. There will be time for Q&A with the author at the end of the film.
