Wolfgang meets Kala’s parents for the first time. they’ve visited to see if daughter’s doing well in Paris. when Wolfgang introduces himself and shakes hands with Sanyam, Kala senses his anxiety. while her parents put food and tea they’ve brought all the way from India on the dining table, Kala stands beside Wolfgang and holds his hand…reassuring him it’s going to be fine. Wolfgang quietly nods with a faint smile and heads to kitchen to help Sanyam.
after dinner, Kala and her mother sits next to each other on a sofa in the living room. two women drink tea together as they watch their men drinking tea at the balcony. Sanyam talks about happiness that food can bring to people, joy of life, mistakes he has made, challenges he’s faced, lessons he has learned in life, how much he loves his family and his daughter. Sanyam gives a glance at his daughter ‘do you love her?’ Wolfgang nods ‘very much, sir’. a soft smile appears on Sanyam’s face.
Kala and Wolfgang return to their apartment after they took Kala’s parents to the hotel near the Eiffel Tower. Wolfgang lets out a heavy sigh. Kala rubs his arms ‘you did well out there’. Wolfgang chuckles and shakes his head ‘I’m not sure about that’. Kala smiles ‘they liked you’ Wolfgang looks down and holds her hands ‘how do you know that?’ she puts her arms around his neck ‘because they saw something good and beautiful inside of you, just like I did’. Wolfgang puts his hands around her waist and says ‘you are blessed to have a father like him’. she pulls him closer to her and kisses him on his lips ‘and I am blessed to have a man that I love standing right before my eyes’. Wolfgang kisses her again. with his forehead touching hers…he says ‘god I love you so much’.
