A comedian turned documentarian is inspired by an old flame to go back to his parents’ village in Bangladesh to complete a documentary as a gift to his mother. Upon arrival secrets of his parents’ past are revealed, extremists kill bloggers and throw acid on women who defy them, and the female ghosts of 1971 liberation appear while Alaudin must choose between love or championing local women as an accidental feminist.
