What's it about?

Martial artist-in-training Ria Khan believes she must save her older sister Lena from her impending marriage. After enlisting the help of her friends, Ria attempts to pull off the most ambitious of all wedding heists in the name of independence and sisterhood.

Why did we pick it?

Writer & director Nida Manzoor takes a story of sisterly love and weaves culture, personality and high-impact stunt work to create a uniquely refreshing experience. An obvious love for martial arts that helps bring a new and exciting voice to an otherwise repetitious cinematic landscape.
