Beautiful divorcee and single mother of one, Meera (Tannishtha Chatterjee) is an Australian of Indian origin. Smart and independent, she has carved out a successful life for herself and her daughter … despite family pressure to find ‘a nice Indian match’.
Then Meera meets Will (Brett Lee)… tall and blonde with a charming smile. But falling in love with an Australian man is not only scandalous – it’s unindian! Does she do as her family wishes? … Or does she follow her heart and live her life the way she wants?
