The filmmaking team's third film set in Glasgow, this story involves a mixed-race relationship that causes problems for all involved. Casim Khan Atta Yaqub lives with his Punjabi-born Muslim family in Scotland. He wants to open a nightclub with pal Hammid Shy Ramsan, but his parents have arranged for him to marry his cousin Jasmine Sunna Mirza.
