Inspired by the Holey Artisan Bakery terror attack, the latest from Bangladesh’s Mostofa Sarwar Farooki is a politically charged, single-take thriller.

In the heat of the summer, one of Dhaka's most beloved restaurants becomes the grounds for an unprecedented terrorist attack.

As the terrorists use bombs and bullets to divide the captives and execute foreigners, another crisis strikes when their captors learn there is an Indian hiding among the remaining Bangladeshi hostages.

Mostofa Sarwar Farooki's loose dramatisation is a tense and compelling political thriller exploring the clashes and contradictions of religion, ideology and humanistic values.
