29-year-olds Dalvinder and Tarun are each looking for love. Both must balance the wishes of their traditional Indian parents with their own desire for a love-marriage but if they don’t get married by 30 they fear they will be seen as damaged goods and bring shame to their families. So each embarks on a frantic journey that takes them through the popular online dating world, to astrologers, matchmakers and even down the path of arranged marriage. INDIAN WEDDING RACE offers unique access to the world of Australia’s Indian community as it explores with pathos and humour the pressures young people face as they race to make it to the temple on time.
