| Excellent comedy - makes you think.
I really enjoyed this film. Starring the glorious Aissa Maiga as one half of the lead couple who adopt a baby and keep his ethnicity a secret from their family. On the one side, you've got a social worker whose prejudice drives her surprise visits, seeking faults in the home or familial environment, and on the other, you've got the baby's adopted grandmother, doing what West African mothers do best - exaggerate everything! Luckily, she does this to comic effect, and I couldn't stop laughing throughout the film.

From the social worker's perspective, it's alright for white couples to adopt black children, as this is an already accepted practice, but it is not in the best interest of a white child to be adopted (or to be the first) by a black couple.

Without giving anything more away, I'll simply say that this is a great film to watch with friends and family, alike.
