Gregoire Mill, 35, is a shy person employed by an insurance company in Paris. Although he has undergone a serious of misfortunes since his birth, Gregoire has faith in the future. From the window of his office, one day he sees Odile Bonheur, a beautiful dance teacher, and he falls in love.
He doesn’t have the courage to talk to her, so he steals her wallet, then calls her to return it. They set up a meeting at a nearby bar that evening. But when he agrees to do a favor for a colleague, misunderstandings occur and he finds himself being pursued through the city.
While waiting at the bar, Odile reads Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, imagining herself as the heroine of the novel.
