    • Synopsis
    • Raghdan Aziz, a young man of British-Indian Muslim heritage, is happy in his new home on the west coast of Ireland. This beach-fronted retreat is the perfect getaway from his controlling father. He has escaped the burden of his legacy and discovered a new sense of community. Living with his adoring aunt and uncle, Raghdan hangs out with his surf buddies Derek and Neville and has mapped out a future with girlfriend, Maeve Logan. On Raghdan's 21st birthday, his father Amir arrives from England with the gift of a run-down meat factory. How will Raghdan cope with this poisoned chalice of a present - a career opportunity that he never wanted? Can he resolve differences with Maeve's uppity father, Martin? Can he heal the growing rift between himself and Maeve and overcome a potential love rival in the form of Jasper? What happens when the community, that had accepted him as one of its own, turns against him?
