Synopsis

Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani plays a version of himself, based on his own true story. Kumail is a Pakistani Muslim living in Chicago, along with his immediate family. His parents continue to surprise Kumail, much to his disapproval, by inviting eligible bachelorettes to dinner as they attempt to arrange a marriage for their son. When Kumail meets Emily at one of his stand-up performances, they hit it off immediately. However, this new romantic development in his life leaves him torn between his religious upbringing, and a desire to break free of these cultural expectations. When Emily suddenly gets sick, Kumail bonds with his would-be in-laws, learning about the ups and downs of love and marriage in this contemporary, cross-cultural romantic comedy.
