ANNUAL SIKH FILM FESTIVAL 2006:
MINUTE MEALS

Surinder, a mother of two whose life work has always been to support others may speak in English but still thinks in Punjabi. Her daughter, Ruby a girl from a different generation and way of thinking than her mom, does not realize the power and meanings of words. That is until Ruby calls her mom a “bitch.” Surinder secretly keeps this information to herself but forces Ruby into cooking lessons, with none other than herself as the instructor. These lessons become more than “life survival” skills and help define their mother-daughter relationship.
