Jesse was a young American and Celine was a beautiful French student who met on a train journey between Budapest and Vienna. They had vowed to meet in Vienna in six months. However, it was only nine years later that they finally did. It was on the occasion when Jesse was promoting a book in Paris, which was based on this experience. Their chance encounter was over 8 years late, but the two walked through Paris in Jesse's last few hours before his flight to see if their love still existed, even though Jesse was married.
