This intense contemporary Western by award-winning young UK/Bengali filmmaker Sadik Ahmed takes place in a remote village of Bangladesh and features breathtaking locations, and leading Bangladeshi theatre actors in a story of passion, jalousy and revenge. The original set, purpose built, is the largest open air set ever built in Bangladesh. A fully functioning town and market place reminiscent of the ghost towns of the Wild West is populated by local characters, market stall holders and street orphans. The fields beyond are coloured with water buffalo, monkeys and crows. The rhythm of the drum beats as dawn rises over the marshland. The celebrations are beginning, it is independence day... A mysterious man dressed as a private guard and armed with a rifle arrives in the town of Doulthapur. This stranger, Kala, soon finds himself caught up in the midst of a bitter and feuding com- munity.

The Chairman, seductive, venal and ruthless putports to represent and defend his people - but one man stands in his way - Thakur, the local Hindu landlord, driven by his own manic obsession to commerate his family by reclaiming all land on which loans are unpaid. Kala and his gun become a vital asset that each side must have. Broke and hungry, Kala begins to bargain with them. He'll take their money but what he wants is information. He has his own mission that brought him here, to find his father, the man who raped his mother, and take revenge.
