During his responsible task, delivering a registered letter to the well-to-do Nathalie de Laat, the boy is smitten with her on the spot. He pursues the girl and spies on her villa. But being a shy guy, Hans is unable to communicate with the girl in a normal way. This situation changes when he sends her a daily anonymous love letter in the form of a fairy tale.
