Even though it’s far more common than before for women in Dubai to have a job, it’s still a different case when it comes to working moms. But time in the United Arab Emirates hasn’t exactly stood still either. The film Together Takeaway offers a glimpse in modern family life in Dubai. In a moving documercial a real (!) family shows us the warm relationship the father and children have with their mom and wife. About how they used to spend time together, how proud they are how she is contributing to the family, and how they want to be there for her now. Mother Zubeida is a graphic designer who works late shifts at their family company. Now it’s her turn to shine! The teenagers and their father lovingly surprise their hardworking mom and wife with a homemade meal.
