Overview

An Adventure of Love and Loss, Humor and Hope.


Two worlds collide when an improbable romance dives into a multicultural marriage.


Vijay’s future is already decided. He’ll marry a nice Indian girl of a particular caste and means. The first in his family to leave India, the young doctor arrives in the United States to further his education. He fully expects to return to his home country and his predestined life.


Elizabeth just celebrated her twenty-first birthday. She’s confident in her plan to get a master’s in Public Health. Her future is bright and her goal to make it on her own is clear. She has no thoughts of marriage.


Determined to become a family, Vijay and Elizabeth walk a fine line between respecting cultural expectations and creating their own unique life together. Navigating the rough waters of love and loss, Bangles, Bindis and Babies takes you on a beautiful journey of unexpected humor and endless hope.
