Heaven on Earth

Heaven on Earth Award-winning filmmaker Deepa Mehta writes and directs this magic realist drama detailing the ill fated arranged marriage between a vibrant young Indian girl and her temperamental Canadian husband.

Chand is about to be married, and in order to celebrate her family throws an elaborate party. The celebrations are decidedly short-lived, however, when upon arriving in Toronto and meeting her new husband Rocky, Chand immediately senses something off-putting about her new spouse and his family. Rocky's mother is nosy and domineering, the children of the household seem prone to malicious pranks, and the new husband himself is unusually cold and distant towards his optimistic young bride.

Increasingly desperate yet unable to contact her family back home, Chand confides her fears in sympathetic fellow factory worker Rosa, who offers a most unusual solution to the dejected bride's dilemma — a potion with the power to make whomever drinks it fall hopelessly and helplessly in love with her.
