The lives of three very different people become interwoven when Pietro stops what he’s been doing, comes down off of his stilts, breaks down, and has to be put back together by Marguerite.
Pietro is a Catholic priest, and Marguerite is a composer. Their meeting takes place in a chapel in Torino, Italy. Pietro has lost his one and only friend, six years ago. Petrified his heart will break, he’s refused to speak of it to anyone. That is, until the day comes when weird but apparently lovable Marguerite—every single day at nine o’clock sharp Marguerite—is standing in the right place at the right time to catch his heart’s unfolding and walk with it to someplace new.
