In this excerpt the filmmaker records a family and a few friends discussing the matter of the daughter dating outside of their cultural group. The filmmaker has chosen to film this exchange in a very intimate setting, a family living room, where the participants can express themselves freely. You sense that the participants are comfortable having the filmmaker present as she is a member of their cultural group.
