Mustafa Needs a Wife
|Project||Mustafa Needs a Wife|
|Writer||Luke Davidson, Mansoor Noor|
Mustafa, a 24 year old Afghan-Australian, is devastated when his white girlfriend breaks up with him. His mother, however, is ecstatic. She reveals a plan to forge a marriage certificate and smuggle a foreign Afghan bride to Australia. Mustafa is mortified but knows his mother would rather be in jail with a married son than free with a failure. Instead of standing up to her, he proposes that he find a respectable girl on his own terms and his mother (suspiciously) agrees to temporarily halt her plans. In each short episode, Mustafa faces a unique dating dilemma as he navigates the two worlds he lives between - his Afghan background and the broader Australian community. While finding The One is no easy feat, the true challenge is learning to take control over his own life.
