A mother’s voice guides her son’s hands through the making of a popular Punjabi delicacy called ‘sarson ka saag’, meaning mustard greens. This is him imitating his mother’s movements, attempting to inherit broken pieces of a partitioned culture. Made on b/w 16 mm film, the film uses mustard and spices in its developing process. Physical testaments of mustard leaves and stains from spices form a gastronomical archive.
