Dave has just moved to London from Jamaica to study and be with his mother, Mrs Jordan, who runs a social club for her fellow countrymen in Brixton. Before he heads off to
Cambridge University, Dave starts seeing Terry, a young working-class English woman. Mrs Jordan is mortified when she finds out. All her hard work has been directed towards
offering her son the best education to help him rise to the ranks of high-class society and avoid the pitfalls of a class-blind racism.
