A young artist relocates to coastal Bangladesh to practice his art, but in doing so up-turns the local community’s age-old customs and taboos.
Unfolding against a looming violent storm in a coastal village in Bangladesh, this atmospheric drama brilliantly captures the conflict of man versus nature. Filmmaker Rezwan Shahriar Sumit makes an ambitious debut, ingeniously weaving varied themes of climate change, religion, and women’s rights.
