This is an intriguing tale of love set against the backdrop of racial, religious and cultural prejudices in different sections of society in modern day Britain. Our story revolves around three central characters Arlo, Henna and Jody from very different walks of life. Arlo, a young Jewish man meets Henna a young Muslim woman, at university, love blossoms and strengthens in the face of the reality of racial and religious intolerance. Unbeknownst to Arlo he has caught the attention of Jody a self-professed skinhead whose intentions appear menacing. As the story unfolds we find that Arlo struggles to accept what Henna has long understood that recognition of them, as a couple by those around them is something that will require biding their time. Meanwhile Jody's obsessive behaviour reveals her true intentions towards Arlo. What will this mean for Arlo and Henna? Our story concludes taking a thought provoking turn as our three central characters come face to face.
