When Alexandre finds a mobile phone he attempts to find its owner which leads him to having a long telephone conversation with Diane. Diane is single, having been married once before and when she speaks to Alexandre on the phone, she can't help but feel slightly enamoured by the smooth talker. Arranging to meet the following day to return the phone, Dianne finally lays eyes on her mystery man and is slightly surprised to see that he's a little shorter than expected.
Though Alexandre isn't exactly what she imagined, Diane is still drawn to him as they had such an initial connection. Alexandre has never let social prejudice get him down - in fact he's doesn't let much stand in his way when it comes to proving that he is just as able as a taller person.

The pair begin to spend more and more time together and even though the duo might be an unlikely coupling in the eyes of some of their friends, family and ex-partners, they might just be able to give one another something they've both been missing.
