Summary
Internet love connections and mail-order brides rarely ever work out, and John should have known. Having never been lucky in love and tired of waiting for the perfect woman to come along, John decides to take his chances and orders a mail-order bride from Russia. At first, things seem perfect even though Nadia doesn't speak much English. But when Nadia's 'cousins' unexpectedly arrive to celebrate her birthday, John is drawn into their web of corruption and crime
