Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon. Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail connects with grad student Emily after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry who he’s never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.
Kumail Nanjiani, Holly Hunter, Zoe Kazan, Ray Romano, Linda Emond, Anupam Kher, Zenobia Shroff, Adeel Akhtar
