is a self-discovery film about being young, free and abroad
A British-Pakistani tourist struggles to mend his broken heart. After a sudden breakup with his girlfriend he finds himself lost and isolated in the foreign city of Granada, Spain.
It’s only when he befriends a group of young international students that he starts to push himself out of his comfort-zone. From the Easter Processions, Moorish influences and Flamenco Gypsies he immerses himself in the many cultures that inhabit the city.
With his new foreign friends, he enrols on a Spanish class, moves into their apartment and tries to restart his life. But behind every corner is a reminder of his ex-girlfriend and his struggle to find closure.
Granada Nights international cast included up-and-coming, breakthrough and
