A day trip to Blackpool to sea the lights, a harmless break from the routine for a minibus full of women from the Asian Womens Centre. It all seems innocent enough, but as the minibus trundles along to a Punjabi rendition of Cliff Richards "Summer Holiday", problems quickly become apparent. Ginder (Kim Vithana) is fleeing her violent husband with her five-year-old son. Hashida (Sarita Khajuria) is eighteen, about to start medical school, and has just discovered she is pregnant by her black boyfriend. Teenage sisters Madhu (Renu Kochar) and Ladhu (Nisha K. Nayar), with no parent in sight, are on the rampage... for a man or perhaps a boy! Asha (Lalita Ahmed) is to discover that there is life and indeed romance beyond the confines of the shop counter. And the judgemental Pushpa (Zohra Sehgal) faces her day of reckoning when she encounters some male strippers. By the end of the day a good deal more has been illuminated than just a stick of rock and a kiss-me-quick hat!
