MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING synopsis

Toula is going through a mid-life crisis, due to her bad luck in love and in life. In the opening sequence, Toula narrates that she has failed her family by breaking the three essential rules of life for a young Greek woman, which are: Marry a Greek man, procreate Greek children, and take care of them for life. 4

Due to this mistake, Toula is forced to work in her family business, a restaurant called “Dancing Zorbas”. Contrary to her “perfect” sister, Toula has a disheveled appearance, and is a cynical character who vaguely expresses her wishes and yearns for happiness. Now 30 years old, Ella Toula fears staying with her current lifestyle. However, all this changes, when one day in the restaurant she meets a school teacher named Ian Miller. Miller's presence reminds him of his old longings to study at a nearby institute.
