Set within the backdrop of Bangladesh's struggle for independence from East Pakistan, Shongram (The Struggle)is a romantic drama which tells the tale of Karim, a Muslim who is in love with a beautiful Hindu girl, Asha. Their peaceful village life is suddenly interrupted by war and Karim must grow up fast to survive in an era when mass killings and abduction was common.

We hope to welcome the director and lead actress to provide a unique insight into this turbulent period of history.

Thanks to Munsur Ali
