The Square of The Cube
A dark comedy about a man whose only achievement in life is also his greatest failure, and his quest to put it right.
Simon Hooper (39) is leading an unfulfilling life as a present- day maths teacher with a classroom full of rowdy 14 year-old pupils more interested in goofing off than paying attention to him. Simon is married to his job, teaching mathematics in an average middle school in an average town. “Simon Squarepants,” as he’s known to students and fellow teachers alike, has been haunted for 25 years by a near miss at First Place in the Rubic Cube Contest when he was a rising maths wizard of 15. He came in second by a second and this seemingly insignificant event has totally undermined Simon’s confidence and overshadowed his life. Finally though, Simon decides it’s time for a change and he seeks one last go at the champion, Joe Mellini, if only he can find him. He locates the one female “Cube” contestant from his past, Michelle Babish, who helps him hunt down Joe for the rematch. Simon, the teacher, learns the lesson that there’s more to life than mathematics, contests and silly obsessions. When events take an unexpected turn, Simon and Michelle find new hope for happiness. A love affair ignites between them that neither saw coming or thought possible.
