Blinded by the Light

Synopsis

Blinded by the Light tells the inspirational story of Javed (Viveik Kalra), a British teen of Pakistani descent growing up in the town of Luton in 1987. When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in the powerful lyrics of ‘The Boss’. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice. Based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s acclaimed memoir Greetings from Bury Park, Blinded by the Light is a joyful story of courage, love, hope, family and the unique ability of music to lift the human spirit.
