Synopsis

Ismail and Muhuit are standing as independent candidates in the local council election, fighting on the issue of providing detox centres for the crack and heroin addicts on the streets in and around Brick Lane, Banglatown, London E1.
 
In and around these same streets, tour guides peddle gory tales of Jack the Ripper and trivia about the local gangsters, the Krays. Tourists cling to this tabloid version of remembrance of things past.  Is everyone oblivious to the Bengali community and their history?
 
Delwas has lived in E1 for more than 15 years and takes us on an alternative tour of the area. We find it is rich in history, art and politics and discover the only museum of immigration in Europe.
