Barakat

By Amy Jephta

When matriarch Aisha decides to accept a marriage proposal, she devises a plan to break the news to her four sons over Eid. The only problem is that the two eldest sons have been at loggerheads since their father passed and refuse to be in the same room at the same time. Her big reveal is spoiled when the boys hear via the grapevine about their mother’s pending nuptials and come together to voice their disapproval of the match. Now it’s up to Aisha, her fiancé and her daughters in law to bring the sons round to her way of thinking using the one thing they can all agree on - the barakat.
