Dial A for Aunties sees a woman named Meddelin Chan accidentally killing her blind date. She looks to her mother for help who calls her meddlesome aunties to help get rid of the body. Unfortunately for them, a body is not exactly easy to get rid of. That is especially true when it is shipped in a cake cooler to a billionaire’s wedding that Meddy and the aunties are working at an island resort. It’s the family business’ biggest job yet, but it could be their last. As she deals with all this, Meddy meets up with her great college love and hopes to reignite their flame… if she can escape murder charges.
