Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. But when a classmate introduces him to the music of “the Boss,” Javed sees parallels to his working-class life. Discovering a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, Javed begins to find the courage to express himself in his own voice.
