Description: Not by Chance is the story of two control-obsessed characters: Enio, a supervisor at a traffic control operation centre and Pedro, a snooker player who seeks absolute mastery of his technique. Both find fulfilment in life by submerging themselves in a mathematical mindset that leads them towards the feeling of control they long for so much. But all this is thrown to the wind one day when both Enio's ex-wife and Pedro's wife die in a car accident.
Descending into the jagged world of his obsessive mind, Pedro despairs until he meets Lucia, a young woman with whom, in a parallel to his snooker techniques, he bizarrely tries to re-live the same exact moments he once lived with his wife. Enio on the other hand, is forced to confront his loss through the mysterious appearance of his unknown daughter, who forces a somewhat clumsy relationship with him by deciding to look after him. Eventually however, the two men must decide between their own obsessions and the new opportunities life has given them.
