About this submission
All Amara wants is to connect with her first generation daughter, Sama. When Amara hears about the school’s potluck, she takes it as an opportunity to finally join Sama’s world outside of their home. The duo connect while preparing some “party potatoes” but when Amara suggests to bring a traditional Indian dish, the connection is severed and on top of that the potatoes are burned. After speaking to her daughter, Amara realizes that their troubles aren’t so different, and that as a mother it’s her duty to help Sama fit into this world which Amara does not quite understand.
