Thomas is a slight­ly cal­cu­lat­ing film direc­tor from Zurich. Léa is a proud, lib­er­at­ed African woman. Togeth­er they form an explo­sive couple. She feels home­sick, he thinks about the rent. She com­plains about her dif­fi­cul­ty of inte­grat­ing with the Swiss, he has to cope with import­ing monkey meat in his suit­case. This tragi­com­e­dy swings back and forth between laugh­ter and tears at the couple’s deep desire to remain togeth­er, in spite of their differences.
