A young woman, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is about to get married, and wants to know who her real father is. After learning about three potential father by reading her mother’s dairy, which seems to have been written in the 70s, she sends out invitations to the three former swains of her mother’s. Donna (Meryl Streep) was quite a sexual adventurer in her younger days, according to the diary. When Sophie’s bridesmaids, Lisa (Rachel McDowall) and Ali (Ashley Lilley) show up, she reads to them from the diary to tell them how she learned who her father might be. Later that day, Donna’s former bandmates, the reclusive writer Rosie (Julie Walters) and high-maintenence serial divorcee’ Tanya (Christine Baranski) show up for the wedding. The menopausal trio have a bit of a torrid past of their own, as they used to be pop singers, and when Donna declares that she does not miss sex at all, the other two know something is very wrong.
