    • Synopsis
    • In a small beach town in Bangladesh, Ayesha and Sohel break out of social prohibitions and violent oppositions from their poverty-ridden families to becoming successful surfers. Like few other boys and girls they are trained by self made first Bangladeshi surfer, Amir.
      As this unusual surfing enthusiasm gets international attention from surfing community and docu-film makers, fund money generates jealousy, squabbles, and power tussles in the small town. Surfing brought newfound fame and glory to Sohel, which leads him to get derailed and seek an extravagant, reckless lifestyle in the capital city and failed relationship with Australian filmmaker Esther. Ironically it is the ‘prohibited’ love for surfing that brings forced marriage and a life of misery for Ayesha. Their passion for surfing reunites them and their bonding unleashes a resurgence of unprecedented enthusiasm for surfing in the small beach town in Bangladesh.
