Kumail is a young Chicago standup comedian who drives for Uber and performs at night. Though he has a one-man show about his Pakistani background, he has no faith in Islam, a fact he conceals from his Muslim family. His immigrant parents set him up with Pakistani women, hoping he will follow their example of an arranged marriage, but he is uninterested.
During a show, Kumail is heckled by Emily, a non-Muslim white woman in the audience. He approaches her after the show and their one-night stand develops into a relationship. Kumail does not tell his family about Emily, as they would disapprove. When Emily finds pictures of the women Kumail’s parents have set him up with, Kumail admits he does not see a long-term future with her due to his family’s expectations. Emily ends their relationship.
