Asian taxi driver Parvez (Om Puri) lives in a northern England town with his wife, Minoo (Gopi Desai), and son, Farid (Akbar Kurtha), an aspiring accountant. The parents are shocked when Farid breaks off his engagement to Madeleine, a white girl, and seeks strict religious instruction from a Muslim maulvi (holy man). Parvez, increasingly estranged from Minoo, embarks on a tentative affair with prostitute Bettina (Rachel Griffiths), but the relationship is threatened by Farid's increasing fanaticism.
