A French couple has adopted a young child who is an African refugee. While the boy integrates well into his new family, he knows he is not their “real” child because their skin color is so different, and he knows he was born across the ocean in Africa. The child has a hide-out on the beach outside their home, and one night he sees a rowboat with a lone person in it head toward his very own beach, another boat in pursuit. When the man jumps out of the boat and runs, the child sees a man with skin like his own–it must be his real father! All this takes place at the beginning of the film, preparing us for a heartwarming romp through the ensuing adventures.
