Ghost Town

1981. Coventry, city of Two Tone and Ska, is riven with battles between skinheads and young Asians. Photographer Baz - 'too desi to be gora, too Paki to be white' - is capturing the conflict on film. Unemployed graduate Maia - serial champion of liberal causes - is pregnant with a mixed-race child. Neither can afford to let the racists win. They must take a stand. A stand that will cost lives.
