When Chick tells Colin that he has met a girl who also shares his interests, Colin realises that Chick's new relationship will render him lonely and he attends a party in the hope of finding his own girlfriend. He meets Chloe (Audrey Tatou) and they plunge headfirst into a dizzying romance. Their happiness is tested by Chloe's unusual illness: she has a waterlily growing in her lung.
