The whimsical and imaginative Stéphane has a mundane job at a calendar company in Paris and wishes for a more creative outlet. He becomes enamored of his neighbor, Stéphanie, but the relationship is threatened by the constant seepage of his fantasy life into his real world.

Stéphane, un joven diseñador tímido e introvertido, tiene una imaginación tan grande que a veces se impone al mundo real.  Su madre lo convence de mudarse a París y le ofrece un empleo. La decepción es grande cuando se encuentra con un trabajo rutinario, pero se desvanece cuando se enamora de su vecina Stéphanie. La relación se ve amenazada por la constante infiltración del mundo fantástico de Stéphane en el mundo real.
