About the Movie

Two London youths, one a Pakastani, the other a white punk, meet after several years apart. Together they accept a business proposition from the Pakistani's uncle to open a laundromat. They re-vamp it into a video and neon palace rivaling some of the New York clubs. These friends also become lovers, learning about class, sex and life.
