ABOUT THE RULES OF ARRANGEMENT:
THE RULES OF ARRANGEMENT tells a powerful, irresistibly charming and relatable tale of a progressive life that won't be hemmed in by outdated rules. Zoya is “nearing her expiration date” according to her family in Mumbai, India where she faces harsh criticism for pursuing a career and ignoring her marriage prospects.
Suddenly Zoya gets caught up in an arranged marriage to someone she barely knows while she secretly engages a job offer from a prestigious company in the U.S.
Her two lives converge, but not without a few cultural casualties, and of course, an accidental love story along the way.
Modernity and tradition go head-to-head in this charming and powerful story of self-love and discovering one's true self, all set in the fragrant-rich city of Mumbai.
