    • Synopsis
    • “What if a river could tell stories?
      What if a river could narrate the stream…it carries everyday!”

      Floating entirely on water ‘Day After Tomorrow’ is a critical-realist portrait of a mini Bangladesh and its forgotten mass. Making a day-night voyage over 200+ kms river-way, crossing rivers, valleys, from the capital to the remotest village of Bangladesh… framing a sweatshop MOTHER with a new toy for her son, a MAN and WOMAN returning after loosing the city-battle, a home-bound CLERIC with radicalized ideas, a POLITICIAN on his way back before the election… the CAPTAIN facing the unknown on every ride, the TICKET-CHECKER getting worried of his teenage son left at home, the MEDICINE-VENDOR, the PALM-READER all selling hope to the deprived mass, the BLIND-SINGER tuning in love, earning a living for the day, everyday! Travelers, divided according to their social dynamics, get on and off all the way, bringing narratives of their kind…weaving a ballad of the land with promise of a new dawn.
