Where there's food, there's family, and that's certainly evident in the 1997 movie, Soul Food. Produced by recording artist, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Soul Food is a heartwarming tale of the familial bonds that are forged through Sunday dinners at Big Mama's house.
Soul Food is told through the eyes of 11 year old Ahmad who has witnessed his family grow farther and farther apart due to relationship tension, money problems, betrayal and revenge, etc. But no matter how horrible things get, there's always hope around Big Mama's table.
When Big Mama suffers a stroke after having her leg amputated, the family threatens to fall apart without her guidance and the tradition of Sunday meals. Ahmad refuses to let this happen and concocts a recipe of his own in the hopes of saving his family.
