It was an argument between two teenagers, living just streets apart, which sparked the darkest days in Oldham’s history.
Michael and Hammad are not those teenagers.
It’s April 2001, and racial tensions are palpable. Surrounded by a confetti of Carlsberg cans, two young friends are involuntarily falling in love.
Social pressures and curiosity collide in this comedy drama by Conor Hunt. A story about race, love and riots.
