Meet Amber, Jazz and Geena Dhillon.  They are sisters living in London who are the envy of all their friends.  They have the best clothes and the teachers all like them too.  They have it all.  But then the unthinkable happens.  Their auntie from India comes to live with them!  Since their mother died, it has been just their dad and them.  And dad is a pushover.  Need a new pair of shoes?  Just ask.  Dad will buy them.  It doesn't matter that you have a pair in your closet that you've never worn.  Dad will give his girls anything they ask for.  But now Auntie is butting into everything.  She's even got Dad convinced that he is spending too much money on the girls!  Can you imagine?  So the girls come up with a plan to get rid of Auntie.  They plan to marry her off.  Can this possibly work?  Join the Bindi Babes as they try one hilarious scheme after another to keep Auntie from ruining their lives.
