What would you do if you had to spend a week in a foreign country? No doubt you'd brush up a little on the language maybe take a look at some important social "not to do here" pamphlets. Now you step off a boat, or a plane and you have to make it through an entire day where you don't seem to belong, where the unfamiliar sounds, sights and smells add to your growing uneasiness. What if I told you this is how many people live their whole life?
Little Brady loves all things French and given the opportunity to move to France he learns all he can to be a part that world. He discovers, that no matter how hard he tries, he will never be French. Brady discovers, with his mother's help, that although he may never be French he can still belong in his own way at his own pace. After all even the Eiffel Tower was once an outcast in its own city and now its very uniqueness is what makes the Parisian landscape so beautiful.
