SYNOPSIS

Twenty continuous shots linger over the slums of Dhaka, contrasting a young man's search for moments of stillness and clarity with the megacity's constant onslaught of sound and movement. The young man seeks peace on a series of bridges crossing an open sewer while the noises of modern urban life - from radio advertising to religious sermons - babble on without pause.

PLOT OUTLINE


Siddhartha starts living in a slum finding the meaning of his existence in life. He sees the gray livelihood flowing like a sewer, juxtaposed with sounds of newsreel commentary, political speech, religious sermon and pornography while those sounds seem more visible in 20 repeated and morbid continuous shots followed by Siddhartha.
