In a rundown park, two teenage runaways Tazeem and Nosheen hang out, chatting to the boys and an old bag lady, trying to reconcile being British with their Pakistani cultural traditions. Wearing a hijab while smoking and swearing gives a sense of belonging, but freedom does not come easily for any of them.
