Film details


Set in Preston. Medical student Jimi meets Simran, a beautiful woman of his own age who is the daughter of his parent's friend from Delhi. Jimi's grandmother mistakenly interprets his warm comments about Simran as assent for his family to arrange his marriage to her. A priest approves the union, but insists that the wedding must take place in the next seven days if it is to be an auspicious match. The family announce the engagement much to Jimi's surprise. But unbeknown to his parents Jimi is in fact gay, and in a loving relationship with Jack, the nephew of his landlady Vanessa.
