Erol is on a path that may change the world: living down Green Lanes is complicated. Read More >

Welcome to Green Lanes in North London where Erol has been working in his dad’s café since leaving college – he’s a Turkish Cypriot. His best mate Tom is getting grief from mum Anastasia to get married – they’re Greek Cypriot like the rest of the gang. Erol’s seeing Maria – another Greek – but she doesn’t want a Muslim to father her child. His dad Remzi and uncle Engin are plotting to get rich back in Northern Cyprus and will sell-up and go, with or without Erol. But, most importantly of all, his two newest friends Abdullah and Kyzar have been helping him become a ‘real’ Muslim and join them in the holy fight to re-establish The Islamic State…

Erol is now on a path that may change the world – and no one told him that living down Green Lanes would be so complicated.
