Jimmy Devine (guitarist) and Gideon (fiddler) travel to Paris on a short busking tour. Upon arriving, they bump into old friend Johnny Farraway (fiddler), who spends his days sitting on the platform of the Odeon metro station waiting for fellow busker Rob (guitarist), who never shows...They bump into Boru McInerny (singer supreme), who spends most of his days perched on a barstool in the Happy Irishman Pub, near the Louvre. They bump into Celine, an old flame of Jimmy's, who invites the duo to come stay at her place. However, they are staying at Eduard Malvonde's house. Eduard (infamous blacklisted writer) loves chatting over dinner about his favourite French authors, and his food ain't bad either. Jimmy is inclined to lodge with Eduard, but when Gideon suggests that he go and stay with Celine (at her invitation), Jimmy has a change of heart. Suddenly jealous, Jimmy finds himself wanting to stay forever in Paris, in his old girlfriend's place, of course. Love conquers literature, but is it too late..?
