Film Outline: Vasyl Seredyuk, the director of a local natural history and crafts museum, sent his daughter Katia to France to study. But little did he know that during her stay she had become engaged to a French doctor — heart surgeon Francois.

“The Seredyuks are a European family!” — this what what literally every single neighbor heard from Vasyl. But he was more than a bit surprised to find out that the son in law of his dreams is a Frenchman with African heritage.

In light of this, Vasyl decides that planning for the wedding to fail sounds like a great plan. But when true love is at stake, no cunning plan can possibly succeed.
