With it's "extraordinary cast" (Los Angeles Times)-including Oscar winner Daniel Day Lewis-and "riveting visual style" (Newsweek), this "warm, compassionate and feisty" film (The Hollywood Reporter) about a young Pakistani man coming of age in London is "a fascinating, eccentric [and] very personal movie" (The New York Times)!
Living on the dole with his alcoholic father in a shabby South London flat, Omar is a bright-eyed Pakistani teenager who wants to make something of himself. And as his papa drowns deeper in vodka and self-pity, Omar turns to his unscrupulous wheeling-and-dealing Uncle Nassar to show him the key to success. But when Nassar hires Omar as manager of a seedy, dilapidated Laundromat, Omar is forced to choose between running a squeaky clean establishment-or conducting some very dirty business!
