Helena is a young doctor who works in a large hospital. Her professional and emotional life is normal until one night she hears a love song through the window. The intensity with which she feels the song is such that Helena now lives to listen, night after night, to the unknown singer. One day, a delicate poem mysteriously appears at her office. Thinking that the author is her colleague Philippe, she yields to his proposals and falls into his arms. When she discovers the truth, she tries to recover love…
