Gurinder Chadha helms the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra), a British teen of Pakistani descent growing up in a small English town in 1987. Amidst racial and economic turmoil, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. 

But when a classmate introduces him to the music of Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in the powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice.

Viveik Kalra, Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Ganatra, Nell Williams, Aaron Phagura, Hayley Atwell and Dean-Charles Chapman star in the film based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s acclaimed memoir “Greetings from Bury Park”.
