A famous Bengali director leaves his wife and kids for a much younger actress – who even happens to be a friend of his daughter's. In conservative Bangladesh, this is more than a family drama; it's a scandal in the media. Daughter Saberi, the family member closest to her father, holds her friend responsible. The film gives a realistic look at family discord without drifting into melodrama.
