West Is West

This belated sequel to East Is East is set in Manchester in 1975 and returns us once again to the dysfunctional Khan family. Sajid, the youngest Khan, is deep in pubescent crisis under heavy assault both from his father’s tyrannical insistence on Pakistani tradition, and from the fierce bullies in the schoolyard.

So, in a last, desperate attempt to ‘sort him out’, his father decides to pack him off to Mrs Khan No 1 and family in the Punjab, the wife and daughters he had abandoned 35 years earlier. It is not long before Ella Khan with a small entourage from Salford, England, swiftly follows to sort out the mess, past and present.
