Zurika Damani is a naturally gifted violinist with a particular love for hip hop beats. But when youâre part of a big Indian family, everyone has expectations, and those certainly donât include hip hop violin. After being rejected by Juilliard, Zuri's last hope is a contest judged by a panel of top tier college scouts. The only problem? This coveted competition happens to take place during Zuriâs sisterâs extravagant wedding week. And Zuri has already been warned, repeatedly, that she is not to miss a single moment.
In the midst of the chaos, Zuriâs mom is in matchmaking mode with the groomâs South African cousin Naveenâwho just happens to be a cocky vocalist set on stealing Zuriâs spotlight at the scouting competition. Luckily Zuri has a crew of loud and loyal female cousins cheering her on. Now, all she has to do is to wow the judges for a top spot, evade getting caught by her parents, resist Naveenâs charms, and, oh yeah . . . not mess up her sisterâs big fat Indian wedding. What could possibly go wrong?
