Summary
An uncommon love story that takes place between a young South London Pakistani man, who decides to open an upscale laundromat to make his family proud, and his childhood friend, a skinhead, who volunteers to help make his dream a reality. This culture-clash comedy is also a subversive work of social realism, which dares to address racism, homophobia, and sociopolitical marginalization in Margaret Thatcher's England
