Toplining the cast is the unmistakable Bouli Lanners; he is joined by young actress Rachel Mwanza, who rose to fame in War Witch by Kim Nguyen, in which she played a child soldier, a role that earned her the Best Actress Award at Berlin. Bouli Lanners plays Martin, a whimsical fifty-something homosexual widower, who is offered the opportunity to enter into a marriage of convenience with a 20-year-old Congolese woman, Tamara. These two people, who could not be more different from each other, will have to make their love believable in the eyes of the immigration authorities, and by dint of pretending, they will end up really falling in love... in their own particular way!

These two fine actors are flanked by an eclectic Belgian cast comprising Virginie Hocq, Eric Kabongo, Jean-Luc Couchard and Jean-Benoît Ugeux
