Movie Info

When Bangladeshi father Kazi (Jayanto Chattopadhyay) becomes a conservative Muslim, he opts to send his son, Anu (Nurul Islam Bablu), to an Islamic school in order to shelter him from the worldly influences of the 1960s. Meanwhile, Anu's thoughtful mother, Ayesha (Rokeya Prachy), who isn't inclined toward zealotry, handles the changes in stride. As the country heads into turmoil, the rigid beliefs that Kazi adheres to and his son tries to understand may have a lasting impact on the family.
