A special presentation from The Elgiva in association with Chiltern Creatives and Chiltern Film Society.
A laugh-out-loud story of a dysfunctional Punjabi family in the pressure cooker life of a terraced suburban home in Slough. Newly arrived from India, naive Simmy has come to marry the family’s eldest son Raj, who shockingly does a runner, leaving Simmy locked in the house by her domineering mother-in-law. However, Simmy is smarter than she appears, and soon enlists the support of the family’s disgruntled in-laws, including a sugar crazed, diabetic grandpa and dangerous, but hot, brother in law, fresh out of jail. Together they plan Simmy’s big escape.
But he soon discovers a shattering family secret and explores how the power of films can help him see the truth.
The screening will be followed by a live Q&A with the director Pravesh Kumar MBE and the producer Dominique Unsworth MBE, hosted by BBC Three Counties’ Toby Friedner.
