  Description     The film  
Shots of traditional Hindu marriage rituals are interspersed with interviews discussing Preety and Dimple's courtship. This was an arranged marriage, and the couple spent little time together before the wedding. This type of marriage is a tradition in Preety's family, and the history of her parents' union is presented. Home movies reveal relevant family history.
