Two African street cleaners in Paris, Bokolo and Mamadou, find a cookbook thrown in the trash. Studying, they initiate themselves into the secrets of French cuisine. When their friend Bruno falls deeply ill, they need money to send him back home for his final days. Is their newfound expertise in the kitchen the answer? Sarah Maldoror’s comedy feature for television, DESSERT FOR CONSTANCE, is a lighthearted, and at times deftly satirical comedy about how one person’s trash is another’s treasure, how culture is nurtured on the streets by the working class and marginalized, and the immigrant experience in France.
