Yasha and Lily, want Zaza, their 32 year old son married. Being of Georgian origins this means that she must be a young bride. She must be rich, gorgeous, and have a good reputation within the community.
 
Each night they set out to check the potential brides. Zaza charms them and makes them feel that he’s the prince of their dreams. Nevertheless, at the critical point he manages to ruins it.
 
No match will succeed as Zaza is hopelessly in love with Judith. She’s older than him, single mom to a six year old daughter, independent, feminine, capturing, and Morrocon. Judith is the embodiment of everything he won’t be able to find within his family tradition.
 
A circumstance of chance will lead Zaza’s parents to find out about Judith and thus his future will be determined, one way or another.
 
Who says love will conquer all?!
