A bittersweet tale of a man whose breakfast habits allow him a tantalizing glimpse of romance outside his loveless marriage.

Mukhtar Sahib is a Pakistani farmer and a creature of habit - every morning he takes breakfast and reads the paper with the local postmaster - but finds himself gradually drawn to the woman of the house. Will fate and the strictures of his society allow him a taste of happiness after his morning tea?

Produced by Clive Brill
A Pacificus production for BBC Radio 4.
