    Om Seeking Betterment

    When a political editor visits East Pakistan in 1963 to report on the civil unrest, he is embroiled in other matters. He rescues a girl, whose brother wanted to sell her for marriage. Against religious expectations and social customs, he marries her. They leave East Pakistan for good. Forty-seven years later, Mayah conspires to take her grandmother back to her motherland so she can reconcile with her estranged brother. Once there, Mayah comes to discover the rich and poor divide. The country has been an independent nation for over forty-years, but poverty and corruption is still very rife. She also learns that fair complexion is still the preference. Most distressingly, he who dares to challenge customs and government risked death. A Street Entertainer and a political activist unknowingly inspire her to be the change the country is struggling to achieve. But there are many hurdles she must overcome. There are those, who fear she will gain power. Will she rise against their oppression?
