The Bangla film, which has been directed by National Award winner filmmaker Fakhrul Arefin Khan, portrays a young boy who is confused about what to do with his life. In his adolescence, he takes on his uncle as his idol; however, as he grows up, he becomes religious minded and starts believing in changing the society according to religious dogma. Later on, when he starts going to college, he finds interest in leftist politics. However, in the end, he discovers his true purpose of life when he comes across bauls and decides to join them. However, it takes great challenge in his socio-economic context to take on the lifestyle of the devoted bards, who renounce the pursuit of material things.

As a devotee of Fakir Lalon Shai, Khan has also made a documentary titled Haq er Ghar featuring the struggle and movement of Lalon’s devotees against the fundamentalists and socio-political leaders, who have been depicted as the usurpers of the holy land of the legendary bard.
