Tracy Pringle (Martine McCutcheon - Love Actually, Echo Beach) is a 25-year-old supermarket checkout girl who escapes the daily tedium of her life by substituting famous people for the dull customers that she serves. Momentarily unable to differentiate between one of her exotic fantasies and a real life shoplifter, she is dismissed for daydreaming. Determined to find better employment, she lays siege to The Taste of Persia restaurant, until the bemused owner, Saaman “Sam” Sahar, (Art Malik - The Living Daylights, Holby City) offers her a job. An unlikely catch, Sam is 49 and married with two common-law wives and four children at his comfortable home in Barnes. Sam is attracted to Tracy’s open mind, her desire to understand Iran and Islam, and the way she hangs on his every word. Even more surprisingly, he is encouraged by his two wives to explore the relationship. When Tracy agrees to become wife number three and join the “harem”, the floodgates for society’s disapproval and prejudice are opened. Her parents are appalled, and her ex-boyfriend, Ricky, a thuggish gravestone maker, schemes to win her back. As Sam’s reverence for his adopted country is stretched, he begins to understand the fear and envy that lie at the heart of the brutal assaults on his household…
