Chloé and her long time friends Antoine and Juliette are single and happy to stay that way. They even go so far as to create their own Single Person’s Manifesto, in which they explicitly vow to “be and remain unmarried.” They have happy, fulfilled lives, after all. Then, without warning, Chloé betrays the friends’ solemn pact by deciding to head off in search of true love.
