Miss India Georgia follows four contestants during the hectic weeks lleading up to Atlanta's annual South Asian beauty pageant. 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 growing up in the US as children of immigrant parents. Sometimes funny and sometimes sad, the stories of these resilient teenagers teach us that each individual's experience of "Americanization" is unique.
