“The Dream”, which later became “Is This Really Britain?” (but with many different songs), is a musical drama about two young friends, Zahid and Doug. Zahid is a singer in a band called “Shame Culture” who wants to bring on a peaceful revolution in Britain with Sophie, (his girlfriend and singer in “Shame Culture”). Soon they are arrested and imprisoned for “inciting a riot”.
Meanwhile, Doug has become a soldier fighting in Iraq and falls in love with Rohima, the daughter of Mr Khan (a Muslim leader) whom he was protecting from extremists. His life is in danger.
Doug and Rohima eventually marry in Britain and her family comes to live in Britain. Meanwhile Zahid and Sophie are released from prison and all seems well until the very end!
