Directed by Habibur Rahman, the film is set against the backdrop of the autocratic regime in unrest Bangladesh in the late 1980s. This was the time when East Germany opens the wall and people are migrating. In the story of the film, Kakru is a young Hindu peasant from a small peasant family in a very rural area of Bangladesh. A highway road is going to be constructed through the land of his family. Kakru and his Muslim peasant friend Matalu make a quick insurgency against the land occupier. But finally, they cannot resist the shattering development. It makes massive changes in the personal and social life of the villagers. The circle of hunger is rolling on and a year is crossed through a flashback of a migrating peasant. Autocracy makes shattering development, that changes their village, their life, the inner dynamics of the family, forced them to migrate. After that the land becomes ‘The Land of Sadness’.
