Ben is a failed children's folk singer and lousy weekend dad. Deeply cynical, his sole pleasure in life are the chess games he has with his Senegalese roommate, Ibou. When Ibou falls into a diabetic coma, Ben's pessimism about the world is confirmed. Then Ibou's sister, Khadi, arrives and takes his place in the apartment.
