A visually stunning, culturally fascinating, politically timely film based on the director's own childhood, this film has been called one of the most important works to come out of the Muslim world. Set against the backdrop of Pakistan during the turbulent 1960s, a family is ripped apart by religious beliefs and civil war. Anu, a shy young boy from rural East Pakistan, is sent away by his father Kazi, an orthodox Muslim, to a Madrasah. Far from his family and the warmth of his region's vibrant Hindu festivities, Anu struggles to adapt to the Islamic school's harsh monastic life.
