This film is made on the struggle of community near Sundarban which is the largest forest of Bangladesh. This community lost their homes and all belongings by a tidal surge. It was a real life story. But this story is repeated every time when cyclone hits that area and that is a cyclone prone area. People of that area are very poor any they hardly receive government help.
