Packed with pace, crazy farce and outlandish one-liners, Jesse Sutanto’s Dial A for Aunties is a laugh-every-few-lines black comedy, driven by undying family support, and a simmering “will-they-won’t-they?” love story.

Photography student Meddy has been set-up on a date by her well-meaning, larger-than-life mum and Chinese Indonesian aunties. Despite still holding a torch for her college sweetheart, she agrees, but pretty soon things go wrong. Very wrong. When her arrogant date makes a move and won’t take no for an answer, Meddy winds up murdering him in self-defence. It’s an accident, but murder is murder. Naturally Meddy turns to her family for help, and naturally they step in to help her hide the body. But with their family wedding business due to work on the wedding of the year, and the body proving problematic to deal with, a fabulous female-fronted farce ensues, replete with mad twists, a hilariously hapless sheriff, and a sweet love story to boot.
