    • Under Construction is about a middle class Muslim woman struggling to find herself in the sprawl of urban Bangladesh. Theatre actress Roya suffers from her husband’s wish for children and traditional life. Not interested in motherhood, she decides to reconstruct a famous and politically minded play for modern times, reclaiming her identity, her freedom and her sexuality in the process.
