Rupture: when picking up his mail, a man is excited to see a letter from his sweetheart. His excitement turns to sorrow when he gets home to his flat and sees that it is a Dear John letter. But that sorrow turns to anger as he figures that he will send her a Dear Jane letter in return. However, writing that letter isn't as easy as he hopes as he encounters one problem after another, from a broken fountain pen, to a temperamental ink well, to stuck stamps, to a broken desk.
Happy anniversary: a woman is preparing a romantic dinner for two for her and her husband to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Her husband is out running a series of errands, most of his stops to pick up anniversary gifts for his wife. But the anti-anniversary Gods seem to be working against him as Paris traffic and other problems at each stop seem to be holding him up from getting in and out and to home on time for dinner. Meanwhile, his wife has no idea what has happened to her husband.
The suitor: Pierre is a shy man whose sole focus in life is studying astrology in solitude, which is often difficult since he still lives at and studies in his parent's house. His parent's would rather he date and get married. Not knowing how to approach women in a romantic way, he watches how other men operate and tries to emulate them, most often without success.).
Yoyo: a man has everything and yet he isn't happy because he longs for the only woman he has ever loved. He finds his lost love along with a son he didn't know that he had living and performing with a traveling circus.
