Even his three best friends can not change this condition, as out of nowhere, the young and bright Avaleen occures in his life at a coffeehouse. She first manages to win him a smile and help him regaining his original happiness. The two fall in love and experience the best time of their lives, his friends even organize a party in honor of his "rebirth". But Avaleen is behaving strange more and more.
