Storyline: Casim Khan, the son of Pakistani immigrants, is a successful DJ in Glasgow. His parents are devout Muslims, who plan for him to marry his beautiful cousin Jasmine, who is soon to arrive in the UK. Their plans go awry when Casim falls in love with Roisin, a Catholic teacher at his sister’s school. Roisin is different from any girl he’s ever met. She’s gorgeous, intelligent and definitely possesses a mind of her own. She and Casim soon fall deeply in love. But Casim knows all too well that, even if he wasn’t due to marry, his parents would never accept a ‘goree’ – a European. As a Catholic, Roisin finds that her own community, more than a little skeptical about her love for Casim, doesn’t prove very supportive either. When their relationship is discovered, the repercussions of the scandal reach far and wide and sparks fly as cultures clash and personalities collide.
