In early 1970s England, a Pakistani father finds the authority he has previously maintained challenged by his increasingly Anglicized children.
All of the actors portraying George's children were born in England and found it easy to relate to their character's feelings of being brought up to be British while being expected to maintain their family's cultural values and beliefs.
Have you seen the state of them two? The one with the teeth's got a mustache like Dad.
Maneer Khan: Tariq's looks like Quasimodo.
Ella Khan: Kids eh. Were your two like that, Mrs. Shah?
Mrs. Shah: No. I believe in strict discipline. Especially in a NON-Pakistani environment.
As the family enter Bradford they cross a sleeping policeman, but these were not seen on British streets in the early seventies.
Special thanks to ... and all the residents of Openshaw.
