Details

A day trip to Blackpool to see the lights, a harmless break from the routine for a mini-bus full of women from the Asian’s Women’s Centre. It all seems innocent enough but as the mini-bus trundles along to a Punjabi rendition of Cliff Richard’s “Summer Holiday” problems quickly become apparent. Ginder is fleeing her violent husband with her 5 year old son. Hashida is eighteen, about to start medical school, and has just discovered that she is pregnant by her black boyfriend. Teenage sisters Madhu and Ladhu, with no parent in sight, are on the rampage…for a man or perhaps a boy! Asha is to discover that there is life and indeed romance beyond the confines of the shop counter. And the judgemental Pushpa faces her day of reckoning when she encounters some male strippers. By the end of the day a good deal more has been illuminated than just a stick of rock and a kiss-me-quick hat!
