American postdoctoral researcher Hannah and runaway Moroccan teenager Tariq have little in common, yet both are susceptible to the daylight ghosts of Paris. Hannah listens to the extraordinary witness of women who were present under the German Occupation; in her desire to understand their lives, and through them her own, she finds a city bursting with clues and connections. Out in the migrant suburbs, Tariq is searching for a mother he barely knew. For him in his innocence, each boulevard, Metro station and street corner is a source of surprise. As an unusual alliance forms between them, both are about to discover the meaning of existence. For Tariq it is friendship, manhood and winning the girl of his dreams; while for Hannah, it is discovering the tender touch of true love before it disappears.
