  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Love and Hate is set in the North of England in a town where racial tension has reached boiling point. Adam has grown up indoctrinated by his mother's and brother's bigoted views. Naseema is from a Muslim family and whilst her father is a liberal who has embraced the West, her brother Yousef fights violence with violence. He believes Naseema should behave like a good Muslim girl but she wants more out of life than an arranged marriage.

When Naseema and Adam meet through work, the mutual attraction is undeniable. Soon Naseema's vivacity and beauty confound Adam's preconceptions and he finds himself unable to condone the views of his family. The young couple embark on a passionate journey of self-discovery. But in order to find happiness together, they must somehow overcome the deep prejudices that surround them.
