Alliance Française de Toronto

The film starts in the halls of a grand hotel in Paris, where Fausto and Nadine meet for the first time. Fausto is from Italy, but works in France as a waiter, though he lives with the dream to succeed and become the maître. Nadine is a beautiful young French girl, who is there to appear in modelling auditions, even against her will. When the two meet, they are fragile, single and obsessed with a seemingly-unreachable idea of happiness. They fall in love and begin a great journey ridden with obstacles, from shady friendships to prison. Despite their fate and their unique way of loving each other, they will suffer and strive all the same, to remain together, against all odds…
