A recently widowed Indian restaurateur living in Montreal who finds Maarya, the perfect girl for his Canadian-born son. After a hastily arranged marriage, he discovers that the home fire is not burning as it should, so he decides to teach his son the traditional art of seduction. Little does he know, his son is gay. Instead of his son winning Maarya’s heart, the widower winds up falling in love with her. When he meets Maarya’s violent brother from India, a family secret is revealed. Who is Maarya? Is she that perfect after all? When Maarya announces her pregnancy, the entire family is thrown into chaos. Treated with equal measure of tragedy and comedy, religious, cultural and sexual taboos explode in this tale of old world values vs. new world sensibilities. Winner of the Best Director award at the Newport Beach International Film Festival, this contemporary story of love and passion promises to give a new meaning to the word family.
