A middle-aged man abandons his corporate life to follow his dream to become a painter. On the way, he develops an unlikely but beautiful relationship with an older woman.
Jack is a middle-aged American living as a squatter in a Paris attic. He paints in a public square and sells his work to survive. There he meets Mirabelle, a blind, 71-year-old, self-appointed pigeon lady who cares for the birds who flutter about his easel. Between Jack and Mirabelle springs a friendship that deepens into an improbable but impassioned love affair.
