Miss India America is a comedy that focuses on the somewhat arrogant and egotistic protagonist of Lily. Lily is a person that is used to winning all the time and she finds her world shattered when her boyfriend breaks up with her and disrupts the perfect plan that she had for her life. By entering into a beauty pageant, Lily finds much more than she bargained for and this might be an event that she finds it difficult to win.
There probably isn't an event that's more shallow than beauty pageants, which focuses a lot what's on the outside and not so much on what's on the inside. As such, overachieving aspiring brain surgeon Lily finds herself really outside her element when she enters the Miss India Golden State Pageant. While Miss India America isn't the most deep of films, it does have some important messages involving self esteem and how winning isn't everything.
