everything you say and think


Is happiness good for human beings? Is truth man's invention? At the International Philosophy Olympiad teenagers are looking for answers. "everything you say and think" slides freely through the worlds of the national competition in Germany and the finals in Denmark — worlds inhabited by adolescents who have all experienced the feeling of being treated like weirdos, simply because of their passion for philosophy. Now they find out that they have allies all over the world. And here emerges Neal's and Jonathan's friendship. Neal finished second in the German qualifications. He reads Plato on his e-book reader and if he’s bored he fantasizes about the challenge of having a zombie as a pet. Jonathan has dedicated his whole life to philosophy. His passions are kindled by epistemological questions like: How can we be certain that we aren't swimming in an ocean of lava right now? These are the types of alluring questions that entice Neal and Jonathan to stay awake the whole night.The film embraces thinking as a way of life. It’s a record of our conversations with young philosophers about becoming restless by autonomous thinking. It’s the story about the friendship between Jonathan and Neal.
