Manchester, North England, 1975. The now much diminished, but still claustrophobic and dysfunctional, Khan family continues to struggle for survival. Sajid, the youngest Khan, the runt of the litter, is deep in pubescent crisis under heavy assault both from his father's tyrannical insistence on Pakistani tradition, and from the fierce bullies in the schoolyard. So, in a last, desperate attempt to 'sort him out', his father decides to pack him off to his first wife and daughters in the Punjab, whom he abandoned 35 years earlier. His second wife, Ella Khan, swiftly follows with a small entourage from Salford, England to sort out the mess, past and present.
