From the director of Bend it Like Beckham comes this delirious, romantic rock ‘n’ roll parable that reawakens the dreamer in us all and reminds us, we were born to run. England 1987, Javed Khan is a British-Pakinstani college student who dreams of becoming a writer. However, these aspirations are constantly crushed between his repressive home-life and a hostile community. When a new friend introduces Javed to the music of Bruce Springsteen, his world is rocked. In Springsteen's songs, Javed finds his own frustrated and passionate feelings reflected back in the powerful, expressive lyrics. Driven by this musical inspiration, Javed charges after his dreams, writing poems and bravely facing down his father who refuses to see writing as a viable future for his son.
