NINA'S HEAVENLY DELIGHTS is a surprising love story where Scottish humour meets Bollywood spectacle! It follows the mixed fortunes of a Glaswegian family, THE SHAHS and their award winning Indian restaurant, The New Taj.
The story is told through the eyes of Nina Shah (Shelley Conn), a young Scottish Asian woman engaged in her own highly personal identity crisis. NINA had left home under a cloud after a row with her father but when he dies suddenly, Nina is forced to return. Her return reunites her with her childhood friend Bobbi (Ronny Jhutti), a wannabe Bollywood drag queen and brings her face to face with Lisa (Laura Fraser), a charismatic young woman who now owns half the restaurant.
Then Nina discovers her father's secret - The New Taj has been selected for The Best of the West Curry Competition. In the turbulent days that follow, Nina (helped by Lisa) embarks on a personal mission to win the trophy for the third time. But Nina's feelings are thrown into turmoil when she realises that she is falling in love.
Can her feelings ever be reciprocated? And, if they are, what will this mean for Nina and her family.
