Parvez is a Pakistani immigrant in England who drives a cab to support his disapproving wife Minoo and their college student son Farid. Parvez develops a friendship with a prostitute named Bettina, whose services (along with Parvez’) are used by a German businessman. When Farid joins a cell of Islamic fundamentalists, Parvez must bide his time and hope that his son will come around to his own assimilationist views.
