Synopsis by Augustine Chay

Directed Gurinder Chadha’s cross-cultural dramedy is an adaptation of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor’s 2007 memoir “Greetings from Bury Park: Race, Religion and Rock N’ Roll.” A second-generation British-Pakistani teenager comes of age in a small town during the Thatcher era, rebelling against parental and cultural expectations with the help of Bruce Springsteen’s music.
