A wedding could be a happy ending for some, or simply a new beginning for others. While celebrating their cousin’s wedding, sisters Julia and Alisa encounter two different men who are about to turn their worlds upside-down. Julia finds herself instantly attracted to accomplished young law graduate Bazli Sulaiman, while Alisa finds herself instantly repulsed by his best friend and superior, Gadafi Wahid. While Bazli courts Julia, Alisa and Gadafi find themselves in the positions of reluctant chaperones, forced to get to know each other despite their initial dislike towards each other. Inspired by Jane Austen’s beloved novel Pride and Prejudice, this is the story of two sisters who learn the true meaning of moving forward, and that while chasing their own happy endings, they are learning to create new beginnings as well.
