In a classic Romeo and Juliet formula, but in a true Bollywood style, Rog and Simran fall in love when they meet on a trip across Europe. They are both Indian-American, but they come from different worlds.
Rog and his family lives in NYC and his parents have very liberal attitudes towards marriage, love and Indian traditions. Simran's Indian family in Chicago is very strict and we come to find out that she has been promised to another man in an arranged marriage back in India.
The two fall in love in their European trip and trouble ensues, Multiple circumstances threaten to keep the two apart. The two must battle familial obligations and extreme parental meddling if they are to be able to be together and at what cost to family and their own futures. Maybe love is not what it is cut out to be and an arranged marriage may just be better all around.
