My Beautiful Laundrette

In a rough London suburb rife with racial tension and poverty, handsome young Omar, together with his English friend Johnny, inherits a run-down laundrette from his rich uncle. As the space transforms, complete with muzac and video screens, their own relationship begins to blossom.
