Summary:
Ava & Gabriel: "Surinam artist, Gabriel Goedbloed, arrives from Holland to paint a mural of the Virgin Mary in St. Anna's Church, which surprises the people of the Curacaon village who did not realize he was black."

Papa's Song: "a drama of domestic tension and cross-cultural misunderstanding." Nico Verema, a decorous, somewhat gloomy Dutch magistrate, lives happily with his wife, Shirley, who is from Curacao and Shirley's two young nephews, complete the household. Its atmosphere of calm bourgeois propriety is soon upended by the arrival of the boys' mother, Magda. Shirley and Magda relationship is very stormy: they careen from screaming recrimination to tearful tenderness. Nico tries to mediate and soothe, but when Shirley, who cannot bear children, demands that he impregnate her sister, the good judge finds himself entangled in an intergenerational, trans-Atlantic web of family dysfunction.
