Each day she purchases a helium balloon, writes a message on it and releases it to the skies hoping it will reach Andrew. The days and nights come and go without much surprises until one night when an angel named Angel (Takeshi Kaneshiro) crashes into her apartment balcony.

She lets him stay at her place until he can return to heaven but he must be her servant to repay for staying at her home. He tells her he won't be much of an bother since he doesn't consume human food as he only survives on humans giving him love.
