A forbidden love story on the lived-in streets of Bradford. Ali is many things: part-time DJ, caring landlord, surrogate dad. Mostly he’s a live-wire who listens and cares, ever-able to improve moods and get the most from folk. Ava, a woman left to care for her taxing home life by a long-departed spouse, comes into Ali’s sparky orbit, meeting his natural compassion with her own easy fondness. An arresting, yearning romantic drama by Clio Barnard that’s laced through with deep feeling for all of love’s - and Bradford’s - complexity.
