The story begins seductively: a woman cooks an Arabic meal with several courses. In a monologue that is interwoven with highly sensual descriptions of the preparation of the food, it unfolds a complex network of relationships on different narrative levels.

Stories are told that are related to concrete political events. The topics are as old as they are current: expulsion from homeland, loss of family, or of life, the difficulties of a new beginning, weddings which create connections, and reconciliation.

The story was completed before the recent political developments, but the title “The Wedding Feast” and the description of the individual courses of the meal suggest a reconciliation around the big table.
