THE BIG SICK follows Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his standup sets. What they thought would be just a one-night stand, however, blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, Kumail is forced to navigate the medical crisis with Emily's parents (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano), while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.
