A lighthearted, whimsical fantasy film about a shy, lonely waitress in Paris who decides to spend her life coming up with elaborate schemes designed to straighten out other people's lives. It all begins when she finds a small box of childhood treasures behind a wall in her apartment and anonymously returns it to its rightful owner. Among other things, she inspires an artist, avenges the victim of a bully, and convinces her father to take his very first vacation, but the question is, can she make herself happy as she does for others? This film is already a major hit in France and has won numerous awards in many festivals. In the past, the film series has shown several other films by the same director, such as The City of Lost Children and Delicatessen.
