Storyline

Love in the 21st century is complicated. When you’re torn between two cultures, between progress and tradition, it’s almost impossible. Sunny is from India. Sonia is from Vancouver. They met on an Indian dating site a year ago and although they’ve never actually met, they profess an undying love for one another and have agreed to marry.

When the day finally comes for Sunny to fly to Vancouver to meet his future wife, fate intervenes. While waiting for his flight, Sunny meets a woman, a beautiful, educated, sophisticated woman. Her name is Priya and, for Sunny, she changes everything.

Additional Comments

We do not have an in-person audition time set up yet. We will be going through self-tapes and then reaching out to actors we’d like to see in person for an audition.

Character 1
Character:

Priya

Age:

26-33

Gender:

Female

Character Description

Strong, independent woman. She is from India and loves to travel and work and meet new people (so only a slight accent). Priya wants it all. Wanting it all, however, comes with a cost. The one thing she wants most, is the thing she does not have… love. Maybe, just maybe she can have that too.

Character 2
Name:

Sonia

Age:

25-29

Gender:

Female

Character Description

Half East Indian, half white. Sonia is Sunny’s fiancé. Born and raised in Vancouver, she is the definition of a princess, spoiled and doted upon by her parents who have never really allowed her to grow up. She is accustomed to getting what she wants and she expects and accepts nothing less. She is stunningly beautiful and is adept at using her looks to her advantage. Self-centered and superficial, appearances are everything to Sonia. She loves to shop and spend her parent’s money on expensive clothes. Her favorite accessory is her Chihuahua, Sha Sha.

Character 3
Name:

Trevor

Age:

25-30

Gender:

Male

Character Description

Trevor is the outsider of the group. In part because he is white, but also because he never really feels comfortable amidst this close knit group of characters. Desperate to fit in, he immerses himself in everything Indian. He tries hard (sometimes too hard) to belong, ever convinced that he doesn’t. Good hearted, his yearning for a good life alongside his sometimes slow working brain makes him the dopey sidekick of the group. He unwittingly falls in the craziest of situations.

Character 4
Name:

Kimi

Age:

25-29

Gender:

Female

Character Description

Kimi is Chinese and one of Sonia’s two best friends. If Sonia is the queen bee, Kimi is one of her minions. Meek and insecure, she worships the ground Sonia walks on and seems unable (or perhaps unwilling), to think for herself. When Sonia says jump, Kimi asks how high. She and her sidekick Harman, are inseparable.

Character 5
Name:

Harman

Age:

24-29

Gender:

Female

Character Description

East Indian. Harman is Mini’s accomplice and part of Sonia’s pussy posse. She’d be lost without Sonia (or thinks she would be… so does Sonia) and she is blindly devoted to her, often at her own expense. Unbeknownst to her (and to everyone else) she is ready to step out from behind Sonia’s shadow and say hello to the world. It wouldn’t take much persuading to convince Kimi that she is too.
