This lightweight Hungarian comedy chronicles the return of an expatriate who has been away for over 38 years. When the Russians invaded Hungary in 1956, 14-year old Tamas Gordon fled the country. But for a case of mumps, he took almost nothing with him. Now he returns with Shirley, his African-American wife. He drives around the streets of his old town in a hired Caddy. Though successful, he is still homesick for his family with whom he has had no contact for almost 40 years. The mumps left him sterile and he has no children. He has returned to pay his younger brother Laci $300,000 to donate his highly viable sperm (Laci's wife already has a son and is pregnant with another.) so Shirley can become pregnant. Laci is happy to oblige, but prefers to impregnate her in the usual manner. Shirley, is also happy to oblige. Trouble ensues.
