Claude Verneuil is a Gaullist notary and his wife Marie is a Catholic bourgeois from Chinon. They are parents of four daughters: Isabelle, Odile, Ségolène, and Laure. The three eldest are already married to men, each one of a different religion and a different ethnic origin. The Verneuils pretend to accept their sons-in-law but have had a hard time hiding their discomfort at accepting people into the family from outside the community. In despair, they put all their hope in their youngest daughter Laure, that she will bring home a Catholic partner. Laure reveals that she has chosen a partner named Charles Kofi, and wishes to marry him. On the first meeting, however, Laure's parents are shocked when they discover that the man to whom their daughter is engaged is a West African from the Ivory Coast.
