Posted on: April 11, 2002 | Views: 212 | Comment

An introduction to Toula's hyper-proud Greek family and the origins of her feelings of inadequacy.

Toula's family thinks it's terrible that she's 30 years old and--gasp!--unmarried. She decides the only way to calm them down is to give in. She makes over her looks, her career, her whole lease on life and--presto chango!--she falls in love with a non-Greek vegetarian who's magically not put off by her decidedly opinionated family. Will their love survive the rigorous social wringer it's about to be put through?
