On 30 August 1997, Amélie finds a child treasure hidden behind the wall that belonged to a dweller from the 50’s, and she decides to anonymously return it to the owner. He seeks out the man and when she witnesses his happiness, she decides to become the “godmother of the rejected;” anonymously helping people that are her acquaintances using her fantasy and little tricks. She convinces her father to travel abroad using his garden gnome, she helps her neighbor that is an outcast and lonely painter, the super that misses her unfaithful husband, her hypochondriac colleague that works in the tobacco shop, as well as many others. But after consuming herself with these escapades – she finds out that she is disregarding her own life and damaging her quest for love. Amélie then discovers she must become more aggressive and take a hold of her life and capture the beauty of love she has always dreamed of.
