Thirty years after leaving India for a better future in America, Tina and her family head to Delhi for her cousin's great big Indian wedding extravaganza and wonder if they may have got it all wrong...
Tina wants to feel Indian. Really Indian. Not Indian in the sense of attending a yoga class in Brooklyn, in the country her parents moved to to make a new life for themselves. She wants to know the real India, only whenever she visits, people take her to bars and restaurants and boutiques that could be anywhere in the world.
She gets her chance to get to know the country when she heads to Delhi for her glamorous cousin Shefali's week-long wedding, with her best friend Marianne, her parents and her mother's all-American boyfriend in tow. Navigating a world of Delhi playboys, models, dating agencies for widows, and wedding guests with personal bodyguards, Tina is determined to have an authentic Indian experience, now if only someone would tell her what that was...
