Summary Can love be deconstructed? What happens when a famous philosopher writes about love, literature and postcards? Jacques Derrida is the father of deconstruction. In 1980 he wrote an intriguing book 'The Post Card' which weaves fact and fiction in a story told through love letters. Love in the Post: From Plato to Derrida transforms The Post Card into a contemporary story about three people whose lives are intertwined in complex and unexpected ways, Theo Marks works in a university department that is soon to be closed. His wife Sophie, enigmatic and distant is in analysis. Filmmaker Joanna struggles to complete a film about The Post Card. These people are set on a collision course prompted by a series of letters that will change their lives forever. The film features a never before seen interview with Derrida, alongside contributions from Derrida scholars
