The film is about meetings. Meetings, startling or awaited, dreaded or craved by each of us, the audience, in secret. A film director with a pocket camera casts his eye around the towns of France and Italy, His inner quest inspires him with four beautiful love stories. In the first story, a young man is so captivated by a young woman that he cannot bring himself to sacrifice his desire for the sake of pleasure. The second explores the film director's fascination with a young woman who admits to him, "I killed my father". In Paris, couples fall apart and two break-ups bring a man and a woman together. The sublimation of love is the theme of the last story. Can the same heart love both God and men?
