"Happenstance" is set in Paris, the Paris of the everyday. The story celebrates the chaos theory, that the beating of a butterfly's wings on one side of the planet, should affect circumstances on the other. A woman on the morning train tells that the full moon will lead Irene (played by Audrey Tautou) to her soulmate. From there, "Happenstance" follows a marvelous series of interlocking events in which little things (like whether or not a museum guard eats a piece of chocolate) affect bigger ones (like whether or not an adulterous husband will tell his wife the truth). A magical, charming tale of possibilities and coincidences that life and love in a big city conjure up.
