Tasting the flavours in the feast of life

Time and youth pass by, but the warm glow of family remains

The Big Meal chronicles 54 meals spanning five generations of a family, from Sam and Nicole’s meeting and marriage to their offspring from one generation to the next. Every meal reflects changing relationships, but no matter it concerns flaring emotions at hand or life in general, the moment is transient. What counts is how we share our meals, live in the moment and treasure those we love.

The Hong Kong premiere of The Big Meal last season prompted many theatregoers to contemplate their own familial relationships. In this fast-paced drama where each scene follows another seamlessly, 54 meals epitomize all that is life. We invite you to relish this moveable feast again.
