An Indigenous lawyer Lauren lives in Sydney with her non-Indigenous boyfriend, Ned. They are madly in love and when Ned proposes they decide to get married immediately in Lauren’s home town of Darwin. Once they arrive at her parent’s house, they quickly realise that Lauren’s mother Daffy has run off, leaving behind only a cryptic note and a heartbroken husband. Now Lauren and Ned have only ten days to plan a wedding and track down Daffy who they believe to be somewhere in the remote far north of Australia. Will they be able to pull it off? Top End Wedding is a delightful and romantic comedy that uses charm and humour to examine family, cross-cultural relationships and Indigenous identity.
