Social misfit Dom works the night shift in a small hotel near the industrial sea port of Le Havre. One night a woman called Fiona arrives with no luggage and no shoes and tells
Dom she is a fairy, granting him three wishes. It’s love at first sight. Two wishes are granted before Fiona disappears and Dom goes in search of her. This anarchic, enchanting, Keystone-like comedy is full of visual jokes that hark back to Chaplin, Keaton and, notably, Jacques Tati.
