Past her prime, Min happily spends her life caring for her sick, foul-mouthed mother, Balbir. With Elvis the home help in tow, mother and daughter head to the local Sikh Temple. When Balbir encounters old friends, a past trauma rears its ugly head. Min and Balbir's illusions are about to be shattered as they become cruelly immersed in a world of desperate aspiration and dangerous deals. In a community where public honour is paramount, is there any room for the truth? This is the script of the play which was forced to close in Birmingham after violent protests from Sikh community members.
