Bicycle Bride A witty film about a rebellious young woman Beena, whose family still clings to their old school beliefs about behavior and marriage for women. She pursues her dreams of freedom - but her Indian mother has other plans, including arranging a marriage for Beena. Beena confides in her best friend Mary Jane, a Caucasian girl who supports her in every way. When Beena meets James Dean from Sweden and is taken by his European charm, Mary Jane is all for it; she knows James is the boy of Beena's dreams. But Beena's mother has imported Bubba, straight from India, for her daughter. Bubba thinks money grow on trees in America, and he must find those trees and marry Beena. Will Beena give in to what her cultural heritage says is right? Or will she follow her heart and possibly lose her family?BicycleBride.com
