One evening, a woman meets a man she used to know when they were students: he was in love with her but she loved someone else. When the name Philippe, her first love, is uttered, it acts as a sort of revelation and she ends up in a movie theater screening the Empire State Building scene from An Affair to Remember. The woman is writing a book on an artist and she has to go to New York to complete it. One morning, a letter, left by a figure that could be Philippe, read in the rain and immediately erased, fixes an appointment at the top of the Empire State Building. Is this real? Like a young woman in love again, she rushes off to New York City to find out.
