The Sharma family experience life as a South Asian family in 50s Britain, from hard factory shifts to adapting their cooking to suit local ingredients. Liver curry anyone?
The Sharmas' time-travels enter the 1970s. Opening a shop, they join an explosion of South Asian entrepreneurship in Birmingham - from building businesses to creating new beats.
The kids dance at a daytimer and get language lessons, while mum and dad work hard to turn a profit, and the whole family start to recognise quite how far they have come.
