When his father falls sick, Gopu knows exactly what will help: a bowl of his mother’s comforting machher jhol (fish curry – in Bengali).
Gopu single-handedly embarks on a journey towards his Dida’s (grandmother) home. He steps outside carefully, counting each step, smelling the scents, and listening to the bustle of the city: all his senses heightened and working in unison to help him reach his destination.
With every step, Gopu is that much closer to the marinated fish sizzling in oil until golden brown, soaking in a hot, spicy stew.
Find out what’s cooking in this tale of pure unconditional love that explores the bond between a father and son, and their connection with a mouthwatering delicacy.
