Bangladesh I 21 mins I Horror, Coming of Age I 2022 I Bengali w/
When the world is overrun with bloodthirsty creatures, the last of mankind persevere in Dhaka, Bangladesh by spending their nights inside the moshari—the traditional South Asian mosquito net and only known shelter from the unknown threat.
Two sisters, Apu and Ayra, must navigate this strange new world to survive. However, their strained relationship is becoming as much of a threat as the dangers outside.
One night, when Ayra’s curiosity lures her outside the safety of the moshari, Apu must rise to the occasion—as they face their demons, together.
