After Aditi ends her affair with a married TV producer she agrees to a marriage that her family has arranged for her. The groom is an Indian living in Texas and relatives from both families come to New Delhi during the monsoon season to attend the wedding. Although meticulously planned, things don’t run quite so smoothly over the course of four days, with family recriminations surfacing and chaos descending on the organisation of the wedding itself. However, happiness lies on the horizon – even for the seemingly lonely wedding planner. . .
