A professor’s career and relationships unravel as she pits herself against institutional sexism at a medical college.

Rehana, a widowed mother and morally resolute assistant professor at a medical college in Bangladesh, witnesses an implied case of sexual misconduct between her superior and a student—and she is unable to ignore it. She relentlessly seeks to expose the perpetrator while navigating domestic pressures and her young daughter’s troubles at school. Coming up against unforgiving institutions and individuals each with their own questionable interpretations of justice, Rehana must decide whether to relent or double down on her mission.
