Based on the songs of successful pop group ABBA, and adapted from the 1999 West End and 2001 Broadway musical, Mamma Mia! tells the story of Donna Sheridan, a single mother whose daughter Sophie is about to be wed. Not knowing who her real dad is, Sophie narrows the choices down to three potential fathers and invites all three to her wedding...

When her best friends, and bridesmaids, Ali (Ashley Lilley) and Lisa (Rachel McDowall) arrive on the Greek island of Kalokairi, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) uncovers that she has found the diary belonging to her mother Donna (Meryl Streep). Through the diary and calculation Sophie has narrowed down who her potential  real father could be to three ex-lovers of Donna: New York-based Irish architect Sam Carmichael (Pierce Brosnan), Swedish adventurer and writer Bill Anderson (Stellan Skarsgård), and British banker Harry Bright (Colin Firth). So Sophie has invited all three to her wedding to Sky (Dominic Cooper), hoping that by spending time and talking with them she will be able to tell who her real father is. Little does Sophie know that Donna has a secret she has kept from everyone — she is uncertain which of the three men is Sophie's father...
