Ah, the Street. It never fails to make us appreciate our lives of a Monday. Tonight, bigoted and cantankerous head chef, Kieran Corrigan, has had enough of foreign workers flooding into this country, as Jimmy McGovern's powerful, award-winning drama continues. Kieran is a lonely man. Raised by his war hero grandfather, he blames the Polish community for his grandad's missed chance to be a Manchester City footballer. Rational. In the kitchen where he works, Kieran's is the only white face. When Kieran goes on a blind date with Maria, a woman he deals with on the phone every day at work, he can't conceal his disappointment upon discovering that she is black. He is forced, however, to confront his hatred of ethnic minorities when a friend asks him to take the credit for saving a Polish girl from a fire. Despite a lifetime of casually blaming immigrants for all life's ills, he finds himself getting close to the child's destitute mother - and even invites her into his home. Then things really start to get complicated...
