Amélie Poulain is on a journey to bring the people around her more joy into their lives, after the discovery of a box hidden in the walls of her apartment and the happiness it brought to its owner upon its return. Up until that point her life had been rather dreary, having been restricted to her house during the majority of her childhood and her mother dying in a rather disturbing and unexpected fashion during her teens, the discovery of the box marks a new chapter. As she begins to work towards helping those around her find happiness, she connects with neighbors she had never spoken with before, bonds more with her coworkers, and even finds a possible love interest for herself.
