Paul and Sali are happily married and have just opened a flower shop in a Paris suburb. The only cloud on their horizon is the long wait to adopt a child. Sali's Senegalese parents, Mamita and Ousmane, even have a name ready for their future grandson: Lamine. Just when they have given up hope, the adoption agency calls with good news—they have a baby boy for Paul and Sali! Paul and Sali's new baby is six months old…and white. When Mamita and Ousmane meet him for the first time, this comedy kicks into fourth gear.
