Despite being born in France, Francis Farge (aka The American) thinks, eats and lives like an American. Unfortunately, he finds it hard to persuade the staff at the US Embassy in Paris of this fact. With the help of a lawyer, he sets out to persuade them to turn his suburban housing estate into the 51st State.
