Recent Orange County high school graduate Lily has it all figured out. She’ll become a doctor like her father, marry her longtime boyfriend Karim, have children, and live happily ever after. When Karim deviates from Lily’s plan by leaving her for the reigning Miss India National, for the first time in her life, Lily doesn’t know what to do. But that quickly passes when she sets sight on a new goal: becoming Miss India National herself!

Jumping head first into the world of Indian-American beauty pageants, Lily has to rely on friends and family and go outside of her comfort zone. Her drive to win pushes her to make some surprising decisions. With a cast of some of the most exciting young talent in the industry today and under the direction of IFFLA alum Ravi Kapoor in his first feature, MISS INDIA AMERICA is a hilarious look at what you might win if you are willing to lose.
