"Blinded by the Light" is a British comedy-drama inspired by the life of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor and his love of the works of Bruce Springsteen.

Javed (Viveik Kalra) is a Pakistani teenager who experiences racial and economic turmoil while living in Luton, England, in 1987.

He writes poetry as a way to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the stubborn views of his traditional father.

When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteeen, Javed sees parallels between the singer's powerful lyrics and his own working-class environment.

Springsteen's melodies soon inspire Javed to find his own voice and follow his dreams. (117 mins.)
