A comic clash of cultures, values and sexuality, TOUCH OF PINK is a romantic comedy featuring Alim (Jimi Mistry), a young South Asian-Canadian, now living in London, who is so caught up in the romance, style and dreams of the old movies that he thinks he's living with the spirit of Cary Grant (Kyle MacLachlan).

But Alim's ideal life in London with lover Giles (Kristen Holden-Reid) begins to unravel when his mother Nuru (Suleka Mathew) shows up. She's come to London to find Alim a proper Ismaili-Muslim girlfriend and to convince him to come home 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 and the earthier pleasures of real life.
