As the family tries to integrate into and navigate modern British society while holding on to their roots and culture, they meet Tonton, a womanizer who loves alcohol and parties. Much to Jean's father's dismay, after losing his job, Tonton moves in with them. He introduces the family--via his church where colorful characters congregate--to a familiar community of fellow country-people, making them feel slightly less alone. Just as the family begins to settle, a threat to their future--to their very presence in their adopted home--looms.
