Javed is a Pakistani teenager who experiences racial and economic turmoil while living in Luton, England, in 1987. He writes poetry as a way to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the stubborn views of his traditional father.

Springsteen’s melodies soon inspire Javed to find his own voice and follow his dreams.
