Agathe Clery, a marketing manager for a cosmetics company, doesn't hide her ambition, or her racist views. However, comments from her co-workers about her dark complexion prompt her to consult a doctor. His diagnosis: she suffers from Addison's disease, a rare phenomenon that darkens the skin.

Soon, Agathe plunges into deep despair when her skin turns completely black. Fired from her job and dumped by her boyfriend, she experiences the injustice inflicted on visible minorities when she searches for another job. To her relief, she's finally hired by a company that only employs people of color. When Agathe succumbs to the charms of her boss, who knows nothing of her illness, complications arise.
