A Parisian bookbinder stumbles across a manuscript containing three stories, each as unlikely as the other.
The first is a letter penned by the poet Charles Baudelaire to an illiterate girl. The second is a noir romance set in Paris in 1940 as the Germans are invading. The third is the strangest of the three: the autobiography of a deathless enchantress. Together, they tell the tale of two lost souls peregrinating through time.
