Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or
so she says. Well, at the very least, she doesn't believe in
fairy-tale love or the Hollywood mythology of love, and her
own experiences have turned her into another modern-day
PAPER HEART follows Charlyne as she embarks on a quest
across America to make a documentary about the one subject
she doesn't fully understand. As she and her good friend
(and director) Nick search for answers and advice about
love, Charlyne talks with friends and strangers, scientists,
bikers, romance novelists, and children. They each offer
diverse views on modern romance, as well as various answers
to the age-old question: does true love really exist?
Then, shortly after filming begins, Charlyne meets a boy
after her own heart: Michael Cera. As their relationship
develops on camera, her pursuit to discover the nature of
love takes on a fresh new urgency. Charlyne risks losing the
person she finds closest to her heart.
Combining elements of documentary and traditional
storytelling, reality and fantasy, PAPER HEART brings a
fresh perspective to the modern romance and redefines the
classic love story.
