A compassionate and illuminating documentary probing the attitudes of Barking’s residents toward their new immigrant neighbours that provides a vivid picture of the attitudes and perceptions at the heart of an increasingly multicultural Britain.

In 2007 Barking was home to London’s most active branch of the far-right British National Party (BNP), living side by side with a new wave of immigrants from the former Yugoslavia, Africa and Eastern Europe. In an even-handed, insightful portrait, ardent BNP activist Dave, lifelong residents Jeff and Susan, and Holocaust survivor Monty and his Nigerian carer, show that where prejudice is concerned, comedy is rarely far away.
