At a quiet dinner party a domineering husband and his unhappy wife find their relationship under unwelcome scrutiny. Concerned friends urge them to look at the roles they play, community leaders guide them to re-interpret Islamic tradition. In their own ways, husband and wife explore their culture and ideas of gender and re-assess their expectations of each other and their hopes for their children. Together they begin to re-build their family. ‘And the Day Came…’ is an accessible look at the complex relationship between culture and gender.
