Description Loic and Seb are a couple living in Paris's gay district, the Marais. Seb is the owner of the district's most trendy, chic and camp nightclub. It's a world devoid of judging eyes where the clientele can be themselves. Things are just terrific. What's more, Loic's dream of transmitting his heart and soul to another human being is about to come true: he's going to be a father. He gave his sperm. Things are just terrific. Marie Haguette, their accomplice, is offering them this gift, the most beautiful gift that two gay guys could receive: a baby! She's three-months pregnant, that dicey moment when things could go wrong... Maybe this is why Loic has morning sickness, contractions and cravings... "It's a common phenomenon among fathers expecting their first baby," the doctor they've called in a panic explains. Phew. Things are just terrific. Except for love, Love with a capital L of course, upsets the pie-cart. Marie falls madly in love with Charles, a wonderful stranger, but at least he's straight. What's more, he's coming to dinner tomorrow night. What should Loic and Seb do? Pay homage to love and honor the woman of their life? Or should they drive away this guy who'll take Marie from them and who'll throw their little trio off balance? Maybe they'll even lose their baby. The whole Queen Team - the gang hanging out at the nightclub - opt for the first solution and go crazy, reaching heights of hysteria, in their attempt to make a good impression on Charles. A man, a real man, a straight man. Halleluiah!
