Gito managed to leave Burundi for an education in France. As far as he is concerned, this makes him a superior specimen of humanity. All this likeable lad thinks he has to do now is to return to Burundi wearing his magnificently stylish clothes and sporting his very superior attitude (and accent), and the world will fall at his feet; careers will open up, and women will worship him.
With a degree in hand, he leaves behind his European girlfriend and heads back to his home in Africa. Once there, he has the bad grace to embarrass his parents, and he snubs them. He also rediscovers the charms of a childhood girlfriend and begins thinking about a future with her. However, his plans face a new obstacle when his French girlfriend comes to visit. What's worse, she is charmed by his rural unsophisticated parents, and they are similarly charmed by her and her sincere willingness to embrace their rural ways.
His situation is not helped by the fact that none of his prospective employers are impressed by his 'superior manner' and education. Soon enough, the two girlfriends discover one another, and after some initial animosity, find they have more in common than they expected and soon become dedicated allies. Gito is about to be taught a lesson he will not easily forget.
