In their mid-30s, Paul and Sali are happily married and the proud new owners of their own florist's store. 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 the couple had given up hope, the adoption agency calls with good news, despite the curious opposition of the infant's case worker, Mrs. Millet, they have a baby boy for Paul and Sali! Their best friends, legal eagle Prune and stoner Manu, rally to make sure the house is ready, so the adoption will be approved. Paul and Sali's new baby is six months old, he's beautiful, he's called Benjamin, he has lovely blue eyes… And he's white!
