'1963' is set in the West London suburbs around Notting Hill. Cathy Palmer is a young woman beginning to make her way in the world. She has a successful hairdressing business, great friends and she has just met a wonderful young man, Jacob Kane. There's just one problem... he's black.

Jacob came to Britain from Jamaica as a baby on the Windrush in 1948. He lives with his sister Anna and extended family - related and otherwise - in the slums of Notting Hill. He too has a good life, but a chance meeting with Cathy brings a love which his family also cannot accept.

Jacob and Cathy are caught between two worlds.

To make things worse, Cathy's father, Frank Palmer, is a notorious gangland boss. Known and feared throughout West London for his violence and ruthlessness, Frank is not above dealing with the black community. He employs Jacob's friend George, a boxer, and earns good money through rigging his fights, and Frank is partial to black women, with whom he has had several affairs, but his daughter becoming involved with a black man... well that's different...

As Jacob and Cathy's love grows, both worlds are forced to re-examine their beliefs and, ultimately, make a choice that will change all their lives.

Can love really conquer all?

Or will prejudice and fear destroy their dreams...
