Soriba Samb (Oumar Diop Makena) is a Senegalese who has gotten a much-prized internship to study filmmaking in Paris. In this story, Soriba heads to Paris, accompanied by the five-year old son of a friend of his who is believed to be still living in Paris. In addition to coping with his new internship, Soriba has to track down the boy's father Issa, a childhood friend of his, and attempt to persuade him to return to Senegal. When he finds him, he discovers that he is successfully running a prostitution ring, and selling pornography, and is not at all inclined to leave Paris. Despite that, Soriba goes to the trouble of performing the spells and rituals he has promised Issa's mom he would do.
