Synopsis

THE DINNER

Logline:
A young Dutch girl, decides to prepare a dinner for her future Moroccan family-in-law by searching information about their habits on the internet.

Synopsis:
A dynamic Dutch girl discovers her boyfriend (Malik, 26) has completely forgotten to tell her, his parents will come to dine at their small apartment that evening. His parents live next to Casablanca and obtained eventually a travel visa after two years. Silke is convinced, she‘ll be appreciated for her efforts to receive her future parents-in–law so swell (with the help of internet), but the mother of Malik has done her outmost too. And because these women both ignore each other’s habits, things don’t go as foreseen. Hapily Malik knows how to transform these good intentions for his sake into a positive note.
