    • When Dezzie befriends new boy Yasin at his school, little does he know his life will take an unexpected turn that will ultimately shape his future. Having witnessed the perpetual racist taunts and bullying to the quiet Chinese newcomer, Dezzie - no stranger to beatings himself - stands up to Yasin’s persecutors and wins the respect, not only of his tormentors, but more importantly of Yasin. Dezzie takes Yasin under his protective wing and they become firm and loyal friends until Yasin’s Godfather Kai Chang arrives to take the teenage Yasin back to Hong Kong. Ten years pass without a word until Yasin comes back to Manchester to find his friend Dezzie, and offers him an envious position at his side within the family firm. But this is a firm with a difference: Dezzie, the only white man to do so this side of the Atlantic is to be a Triad member and run the family business in Manchester and Liverpool.
