Feroza is blissfully happy with David, her Jewish boyfriend. But her Parsee family is not so ecstatic when they decide to marry as Feroza must then give up her religion. Spurred on by granny, a forceful matriarch who sharpens her tongue in the knife drawer, Feroza’s mother is sent to London to talk sense into her. Here she is torn between a mother’s love for her daughter and her duty to family and faith. But her attempts to derail the lovers provokes David into reasserting his own cultural roots.

Caught in the middle of this clash of cultures and expectations, Feroza must resolve her love, loyalties and her need to belong…

Sock ‘em With Honey was adapted from Bapsi Sidhwa’s celebrated novel, The American Brat.
