Synopsis

Two brothers share the same Algerian father but have different mothers. Alan's mother is Scottish whilst Samir's mother is also North African. Samir is fluent in Arabic but Alan cannot speak the language. They are united by the fact they share the same father that has been absent from both their lives. They have both grown up in west London but on distinctly different sides of the tracks. A night out in London reveals hidden tensions between them.
