Through songs made popular by the band ABBA, Mamma Mia! tells the tale of Donna, an independent hotelier in the Greek islands, who is preparing for her daughter Sophie's wedding with the help of two old friends. Meanwhile Sophie, secretly invites three men from her mother's past in hope of meeting her real father and having him escort her down the aisle on her big day.
