Co-produced by Spike Lee’s company, this lavishly photographed film was born to be seen on the big screen! Set in the stunning, unlimited vistas of coastal Bangladesh we meet Rudro, a young artist, who after the death of his father, relocates to a remote beach village to find closure and practice his craftsmanship. At first he is welcomed by the traditional locals, but when the fish shoals they rely on suddenly disappear, Rudro’s modern ideas are blamed. As a cyclone approaches, social and physical storms threaten Rudro’s way of life.
