A young man returns home where he lives with his parents. Thinking he is alone, he pours whiskey in a teapot to savor his moment without incurring the wrath of his Muslim family. His father comes in and, seeing the teapot, requests a cup. At first surprised by its taste, he seems however to particularly appreciate this variety of tea and drinks several cups. In an advanced state of intoxication, he confides in his son in a way he never has before.
