Synopsis

When Bee returns to Malaysia for the first time in a decade, she introduces her conservative father Uncle Chuan to her happy-go-lucky British fiancé, Benji. At first opposed to the marriage due to cultural differences, Uncle Chuan reluctantly allows them to marry but on one condition — the wedding ceremony has to be in the traditional way. Despite their lack of understanding towards one another, Benji and Uncle Chuan embark on a nationwide journey to hand-deliver wedding invitations to the latter’s childhood friends all the while learning valuable lessons about accepting each other’s differences.
