In 1980s Trinidad the economy is booming and the future seems full of promise. Hugh and Jean, a high-flying business couple, have every reason to be happy.
But Hugh is restless. When he meets an old woman selling traditional Caribbean food he remembers the meals his mother used to make: he realizes what is missing in his life. Jean is too busy to cook. She has just landed the best job of her career: promoting a new brand of American cigarettes.
Starting with food, Hugh begins to change his whole way of life. His search for happiness leads him away from swimming pools, speed boats and chicken and chips. And everything he does drives him and Jean further apart.
Meetings, by Mustapha Matura, is a darkly comic look at a generation tempted by the fast cars and fast food of the American lifestyle but rooted in a more traditional culture.
