In this documentary, the age-old tradition of arranged marriages takes a modern twist when 3 second-generation South Asian young people decide to marry. Engaging and refreshingly candid in their opinions, they make it clear that arranged marriages aren't what they used to be.

    “That was yet another wonderful nfb contribution to building rightful pride in Canada.....still a public voice for what is good and decent questing of our developing humanity. I feel proud to live in a country that still has this national culture. But will the present government allow it to live? I fear not.” — GAZ4gary, 27 Aug 2012

    “@moe_baller Can you describe the problem you are experiencing? The film is working on our end. Did you try streaming a lower quality version? The quality tab is located on the lower left corner of the player. It may help to select "LOW". ” — cweldon, 6 May 2011
