Bhor (Start of a new day)

Reza and Sobuj, two teenage boys, run away from their home when Sobuj's elder brother, who joined the muktibahini (Guerrilla) earlier, presumably gets captured and goes missing.
The plot runs during the 1971 independence war of Bangladesh, where the Pakistani army has been ravaging towns and villages of East Pakistan, leaving people no other choice but to flee for their lives. With no food or resources, these boys are scrambling
amidst the war-torn countryside, managing their way forward, carefully avoiding the massacre and torture of the military and their subsidiary forces. On their way, they come
across two sisters, who were also fleeing with their parents but got detached from them during a military raid at their resting spot. On another side of the village, a Hindu teenage girl, Krishna, is surviving the military wave at her village hut with her mother and critically ill grandmother, when she comes across a
disgruntled hysterical couple who have just lost their daughters at a military raid. Overcoming the interreligious dogmas and aversion, these two families now need to
cooperate and help each other to survive this sudden adverse situation.
