The return of Adam, their son, from his American college education was a highly anticipated day for Peah and Abu.
However, he didn’t return alone.
By his side was Carmen, his American girlfriend and, surprise, soon-to-be bride!
Carmen’s Western upbringing and modern outlook on marriage was a stark contrast to Peah’s conservative beliefs.
Unable to accept her son’s fiancée, she challenged Carmen to a cook-off, to prepare the family’s favourite dish, a traditional fish stew.
What could have been a recipe for disaster brought the family together, and they were all the better for it!
