The 1950s: Paris through the eyes of a group of African immigrants. The children, the monuments and the passers-by, as if in an ethnological documentary in reverse. The life of the city and attempts at integration. A mixed couple ride through the capital's streets on a scooter and an African girl waits for her French boyfriend. Afrique-sur-Seine is considered the first African film.
