Plot Summary: On a small Greek island, Sophie
dreams of a perfect wedding — one which includes her father giving her away.
The problem? Sophie doesn’t know who he is! Her mother Donna, the former lead
singer of the 1970s pop group Donna and the Dynamos, refuses to talk about the
past, so Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands. Sneaking a peek in
her mother’s old diaries, she discovers three possible fathers: Sam, Bill, and
Harry. She secretly invites all three to the wedding, convinced that she’ll
