Bilodo lives a solitary daily life, routinely completing his postal rounds every day and returning to his empty Montreal apartment.

She is corresponding with Gaston, a master poet, and their letters are each composed of only three lines. They are writing each other haikus. The simplicity and elegance of their poems move Bilado and he begins to fall in love with her. But one day, out on his round, he witnesses a terrible and tragic accident. Just as Gaston is walking up to the post-box to mail his next haiku to SEgolEne, he is hit by a car and dies on the side of the road.

Bilodo est un facteur indiscret. Parmi la paperasse sans âme qu'il distribue, il lui arrive de trouver des lettres qu'il apporte chez lui, qu'il ouvre à la vapeur, et desquelles il fait des copies pour ses archives avant de les livrer à leurs destinataires légitimes, les citoyens de Saint-Janvier-des-Âmes. Parmi eux, on retrouve Gaston Grandpré - qui entretient une relation épistolaire avec la mystérieuse Ségolène - et Tania, la serveuse du Madelinot, le restaurant où Bilodo et ses collègues se retrouvent. Un jour d'orage, leurs vies vont être bouleversées et ce sera le début d'une histoire marquée par l'imagination et le rêve, mais aussi frappée par le destin tragique de l'Homme voué à un éternel recommencement

Ozzy, ein begnadeter Graffitikünstler mit einem Faible für das Ägyptische Totenbuch, hat sich mit seiner Clique ein Refugium in einer ehemaligen Keksfabrik geschaffen. In dem maroden Bau am Stadtrand gibt es genug Platz für seine grosszügigen Wandmalereien, und auch seine exzentrischen Gefährten können sich hier frei entfalten.Unangefochtene Anführerin der Clique ist Ozzys Schwester Aude, die erstaunlicherweise in der Öffentlichkeit nicht wahrgenommen wird. Für Ozzy empfindet sie absolute Liebe, für ihn würde sie alles tun. Als die Sprengung der Fabrik droht, greift sie zu einer radikalen Massnahme, wird von der Polizei aufgegriffen und in die Psychiatrie eingewiesen.
