What’s an Iranian mom in East Texas to do? Throughout one long day, while she indefatigably cooks and cooks, her three children traipse back to the family home with their very American attitudes, expectations and conflicts—all foreign to her cultural sensibilities. As the day progresses, she must reckon with an escalating crisis that threatens the foundation of their lives.
Straight out of a classical American dramatic genre, Our Mother’s Meal retells the American story through a timely Middle Eastern lens, and in so doing redefines what America truly is.
