This hilarious French farce puts a whole new spin on the menage-a-trois as it tells the story of a sperm donor who develops patriarchal feelings for the unborn child of his best friend's wife. The tangled mess begins when Jerome and Delphine, his wife of five years, learn that Jerome is sterile. Though Jerome is willing to adopt, Delphine wants to experience the birthing process. They decide to use a donor to impregnate her and choose Jerome's womanizing best friend Salim, an Arab. This could cause problems in their bourgeoisie, white breaded families, but the husband and wife don't care. Salim agrees to do the job and so the three go to Switzerland (in France all sperm donors remain anonymous). It is successful and the return to France. A few months later trouble ensues when Delphine runs into Salim's girl friend Sophie in a department store. She accidentally hears that Delphine is carrying Salim's baby and goes over the edge thinking he cheated upon her. Salim ends up homeless and so moves in with his best pal. Now the three must somehow work out the jumble of conflicting emotions as both men feel quite fatherly towards poor Delphine's baby.
