Alim (Jimi Mistry, THE GURU), is a young Ismaili Canadian, now living in London, who is so caught up in the romance, style and dreams of the old movies that he has adopted the spirit of Cary Grant (Kyle MacLachlan, SEX IN THE CITY, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) as his lifestyle advisor. Whilst Cary freely gossips about his defunct co-stars and offers sartorial tips, Alim is enjoying a hot romance with his new sexy boyfriend Giles (Kristen Holden-Ried, THE TUDORS). But his life of leisure and pleasure begins to unravel when his mother Nuru (Suleka Mathew, MEN IN TREES) shows up. She has come to London to find Alim a proper Ismaili-Muslim girlfriend and to convince him to return to Canada and join the family for his cousin's spectacular wedding. Once in Toronto, Alim's different worlds begin to collide and he has to choose between his fantasy life with Cary, his family and the earthier pleasures of real life with his man.
Paying homage to the Cary Grant and Doris Day movies of the late '50s and early '60s, A Touch of Pink is 'A clever and big hearted screwball comedy' New York Post.

The unlikely foursome form a tight bond during a secular vacation by the coast, spending their days frolicking in the surf, dancing in the moonlight and getting merry with bottles of calvados.
