In this contemporary retelling of a classic Commedia dell'arte legend of tomfoolery and hopeless, fawning love, Gaiman and Bolton update the tale of Harlequin and Columbine. A magical buffoon burdened with a brimming heart, Harlequin chases his sensible, oblivious Columbine around the city streets, having given his heart freely. Consumed with love, the impulsive clown sees his heart dragged about town, with a charming surprise to bend the story in a modern direction.

The Harllequin has fallen in love with a young woman named Columbine. She is unable to see him, but he follows her around. One day he freely and of his own will, gives his heart to her, by nailing it to her door.

Sensing his presence but not letting it show on her face, she constructs a plan to confront him, and end his Tom Foolery.
