Handsome anesthesiologist Neel is sure he can resist his family's pleas that he marry a good Indian girl. With a girlfriend and a career back in San Francisco, the last thing Neel needs is an arranged marriage. But that's precisely what he gets. His bride, Leila, a thirty-year-old teacher, comes with her own complications. They struggle to reconcile their own desires with others expectations in this story of two people, two countries, and two ways of life that may be more compatible than they seem.
