Summary Four brides. Four countries. One big day. Women spend their lives receiving contradictory messages about marriage: Four brides. Four countries. One big day. Women spend their lives receiving contradictory messages about marriage: an aspiration, a fantasy, a trap. An ancient institution, whose meaning has been fiercely debated the world over, it can be difficult to pin-point what marriage means to modern women around the world. To Benay, in Turkey, it means a new beginning and a new family, something she lost with the passing of her mother when she was a child. To honour this, she's getting married on Mother's Day. To Anna, in Australia, it means being made one with her partner and her God, and preparing to lose her virginity. To Luthanlu, in India, it means an opportunity to continue her Rongmei Naga culture, a tribal minority in the North-East of the country. And to Dalia, in Mexico, it means the validation of her relationship with her girlfriend, and hopefully, reconciliation with her conservative mother.Shot on location in Australia, India, Mexico, and Turkey, the film is a lyrical snapshot of the meeting place of duty, culture, and love
