Age Rating:


It is the semi near future. Mars has been colonised and off-worlders are frequent visitors to Earth. Stan's daughter, Samantha is getting married but Stan is not happy. He’s not too keen on Ravi, the groom who is an off-worlder. This a constant sore point between father and daughter. When Ravi turns up unexpectedly on Stan's doorstep just before the wedding it seems as if another problem has been thrown in the works. Can Stan sort out Ravi’s mother, who is having her own doubts about her son’s marriage?
This is part of the pilot for a comic-drama about family troubles off-world and on.
