The movie is directed by Shekhar Kapoor and has been written by Jemima Goldsmith.

Zoe is raised by her divorcé mother and Kazim lives with his Pakistani parents.
Following in his parent’s footsteps, Kazim opts for an arranged marriage with a bright and beautiful girl from Pakistan.
Zoe, a dating app addict, for whom swiping right has only delivered an endless stream of Mr. Wrongs, is baffled by Kazim’s decision. His decision provides Zoe with a brilliant idea for her next documentary.
As Zoe begins recording Kazim’s journey from London to Lahore, where her friend is set to marry a complete stranger chosen by his parents, she wonders if she could learn something from a different approach to finding love. The film has been backed by Studiocanal and is set for a release in the UK, France, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand. The film would be available for sale worldwide.
The movie is set for release in UK cinemas on January 27, 2023. There is no word yet on whether the film, which heavily features Pakistan in both story and cast, would ever be screened in Pakistan.
