Synopsis

Meet Ella, a headstrong young American woman who defies everything — her traditional Albanian upbringing, her strict family, her nemesis — the formidable Aunt Shirley to risk it all for TRUE LOVE.

But will true love prevail? Or will Ella get burned in the process?

A love story about growing up FAT & Albanian. Your family or your heart? YOU decide. But choose wisely. And remember — love, luck, fate, no matter what life throws you... your family always has your back. If they don't stab you first.

A story that's messy, complicated, violent. A movie about FAMILY.

different weddings
Same day, different wedding. The Americans: classic, pristine, elegant. The Albanians: winsome, wild & wacky. Watch for stray bullets.
