Synopsis

The Soul Food series picked up where the 1997 film left off, the Joseph family trying to stay a strong and united family with traditional values while they face daily trials and tribulations.

The matriarch of the Joseph family is Mama Joe who has now passed on but she still remains in spirit with her kindly words of wisdom usually resounded through her eldest grandson, Ahmad.

The family is made up of three sisters, Teri is an intelligent beautiful sophisticated woman who's ambition is to make partner in the law firm she works for.

Then there's Maxine, a stay at home mom who's married to Kenny Chadway who owns a tow-truck company. Lastly is Bird who owns a hair salon and is married to an ex-con, Lem van Adams.

The family is brought together by an old tradition of meeting Sundays for dinner and having soul food together whilst discussing the latest family dramas.

Through the many catfights between the sisters, the affairs, panic attacks, pregnancies, abortions, etc the Joseph sisters will always make their way home to Mama Joe's house where they'll enjoy dinner and recognize that family means everything to them.
