If ever a family was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, it’s the Gupta family of Mumbai, India! An unexpected takeover of the Gupta family business lands it in the hands of an American corporation. Marital woes abound as traditional male-female dynamics are challenged. The specter of interracial dating rears its unruly head. And a poisonous legacy threatens the security of the family home.

Traditionally, an Indian family would have suffered said struggles with silent resentment. But in this age of globalization, intrusive modes of communication and Western style family therapy turn tradition on its head. Globalization at its funniest!
