Javed is a Pakistani teenager who experiences racial and economic turmoil while living in Luton, England, in 1987. He writes poetry as a way to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the stubborn views of his traditional father. When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteeen, Javed sees parallels between the singer’s powerful lyrics and his own working-class environment. Springsteen’s melodies soon inspire Javed to find his own voice and follow his dreams.

★★★★ “ode to Springsteen is utterly joyous”  THE INDEPENDENT
★★★★ “an exuberant anthem to the importance of music, the need to be seen and the hope of new possibilities”  EMPIRE
