They fall in love; Joe shares with Chloe his passion for film. They both explore the city, watch movies and grow together. Time goes by and Chole falls out of love with Joe. They break up and Joe goes through a major depression. Then one day he finds inspiration in his heartbreak, and he writes a story about Chole. At the end he realizes that Chole was not just a person that he fell in love with, it was also the city he lived in.
