In this modern musical, young Jeanne (Virginie Ledoyen) spends her days going on a succession of dates with various men, but never really finding happiness. An unexpected encounter on the metro changes her entire love life and outlook on dating when she meets Olivier (Mathieu Demy)—a man who happens to be HIV-positive.
