Bollywood Jane

All the elements for an epic Bollywood extravaganza: A mother and daughter on the run. A wife betrayed. A forbidden passion. A broken heart. Fish and chips. Single mum Kate has done a runner from the bloke next door. After landing up in Bradford with just a few bags of clothes and Jane, her seriously disenchanted daughter, it's all looking pretty grim. But then Jane meets local lad Dini and she's swept up into the fantasy world of Amrish Puri and the wild, vibrant heart of Bollywood films. In true Bollywood fashion life is much more fun when played out in sequins and saris with a glamorous team of backing dances. But can she escape her drab life and become Bollywood Jane for real?
