AbstractHistoryArchive Description

An American woman and a Frenchman enter into a marriage of convenience to obtain, for her, a dream apartment and, for him, a green card, permitting him to work in the U.S. They marry, and go their separate ways. But when they attract the suspicions of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, they are forced to live as husband and wife in an effort to convince the government that their marriage is not a sham.
