Her friends urge her to get out there and meet new people. She visits several locations, but can never seem to find what she wants: happiness and true love. At Biarritz train station she meets a young man who is travelling to Saint-Jean-de-Luz. She goes with him and together they fall in love in front of the warm glow of sunset; and le rayon vert (the Green flash).
