Written by and starring Ayub Khan Din (My Beautiful Laundrette, East is East) alongside multi-award winning Jane Horrocks (Sunshine on Leith, Little Voice, Life is Sweet, Absolutely Fabulous). An hilarious modern classic about growing up in multiracial England. Pakistani chip-shop owner George Khan (Ayub Khan Din) is determined to give his children a strict Muslim upbringing against the unforgiving backdrop of 1970s Salford.
