Miss India Georgia is a 56-minute video documentary that tells the stories of four contestants in the Atlanta pageant. The film accompanies the young women to church, temple and mosque; follows while they shop at the mall and hang out with friends; goes with them to parties, fast-food jobs, dance clubs, and pageant rehearsals. In discussions with their grandparents about arranged marriages, in quarrels with their boyfriends, and in revealing conversations with Indian and non-Indian friends, these young women disclose the complexity of their feelings about being first-generation Americans.
