Inspired by a true story this is a drama about a British boy with Pakistani origins trying to overcome racism and strict parentage in Luton in the 80s. When he is introduced to the music of Bruce Springsteen he becomes more than just a fan; it gives him an identity, faith in life and the courage to do things he wouldn't have dared otherwise. A deliciously romantic rock ‘n' roll parable and an ode to the power of pop music to inspire.
