Elvie is twenty-seven and works in Brussels, where the apéros are French and the beer is served with fruit syrup. Life in the Bubble of European civil servants suits her well. The men she dates she considers entertaining passers-by, who pay for dinner and fill her time. During the weekends Elvie goes for long walks, observing the city and the people. Brussels feels like the ultimate escape: the drinks, the networking and the beggars in the street cannot really get to her. That changes when she meets the Flemish artist Camille. Elvie is surprised by her confused feelings for someone who is as elusive as herself. Their friendship is like a soap bubble, light and beautiful, but turns out to be equally delicate.
