Employed by a glazier in Province, Joachim Fox travels to Paris to measure the mirrors at the Opera Garnier. By chance he meets Helen Marchal, the depressed head instructor of the dance school. On impulse, he kisses her. From that moment, the two strangers are bound by a strange spell that forces them to mimic each other’s actions and prevents them from separating. This closeness forces them to live under the same roof.
Neither Joaquim’s possessive sister Vero nor Helen’s ever-present best friend, Constance, are pleased by this arrangement. While the teacher takes the opportunity to give Joachim and Vero dance lessons in anticipation of Vero’s upcoming dance competition, Constance gradually gets more and more distant.
