Film synopsis: 
Young photographer Khaleed Saikat once decided to go for a journey into the unknown. He took his laptop, camera, and some money with him. But no destination remains unknown at its end. Khaleed landed a small village market where he met the ‘Orao’ Youngman Arun Khalko and his constant companion Shukra. Shukra is an owner of a tea-stall up on the landing. Khaleed doesn’t get the acquaintance of Arun on the short meeting even. While talking with them they reached to the entrance of the village where the road was divided into two directions. Arun and Shukra left him there with there confusing identity. To find a place for the night to stay he walked to a village with bewildered expression. Suddenly there appears Arun and Shukra with laughter; unexpectedly they propose him to be a guest of The Missionary Church Guest House. Khaleed heals a breath of relieve. By the evening Arun gets intimate with Khaleed. Arun is a Christian Orao, by religion, at present he is in the charge of the Church on absence of Father. Time passes and after a while Khaleed comes to know by a drunken Youngman’s shouts that a girl named Arati is involved with Arun’s activities which the young fellow dislikes because he loves Arati. Khaleed, suspecting the Youngman senseless approaches to him but Arun stops him. In the middle of the night the drumming beats of ‘Madol’ (a traditional drum of Orao tribe) was heard by Khaleed along with the sounds of singing and dancing. Khaleed takes his camera and come out to join the festival of ‘Fagua’. The headman Budu Master warmly welcomed him but didn’t allow him to take photographs. There Khaleed met Arati and talked with Budu Master. Khaleed couldn’t find the dumb boy of the tribe to whom he kept his cell phone. Khaleed enjoyed the ‘Fagua’ festival. Arun also came there but didn’t join. Khaleed came to know that Arun has no right to join the festival, from the conversation between Arati and Budhla, while returning back. Next morning Khaleed found the real identity of Arun. He is a disowned son of Budu Master. The reason after disowning is Arun’s adoption of Christianity. He also came to know that Arun was a student of Christian missionary school, for the last three years he is staying in this village after receiving a higher education from abroad. Arun had lot of planning concerning to his community. Arati is mainly a teacher of Arun’s school. Last two years they have been working together on Arun’s plan to develop their community. But Arati is little confused from the last few days that whether she’s got any existence or existing personality in Arun’s mind or not. And she discovered –no there is nothing like that. Their relation is based on the dreams of Arun which is concerned to this Orao village. Arun starts to run a cold debate with Budhla in Arati’s home. Budhla want to marry Arati, her mother gives an approval to this proposal to maintain the society. Mean while at the school Arati and Arun’s debate comes to an extreme level. Arati abruptly says that working with Arun has become nearly impossible for her by denying the constitution of ‘Orao’ community. She says that she has found an obsession about Arun behind her working. It’s only because she respects the dreams of Arun and that’s why she will try this to the end. But Arun is not an apprehensive personality. In the afternoon, while Khaleed roaming on the walkways of the village with Arati, she portrays the dreams of Arun. In his plan the agricultural farm, hospital, educational institutions are nearly ready; it was just a matter of time then. But Arati speaks the other sense. When Khaleed was taking her photo she said that she has lost her face. Her face is just like Arun’s as it is same for every ‘Orao’. But these two faces never act the same. On that night Arati came to Arun’s room. She asks Arun “Do you mean yourself as an ‘Orao’ ? ” Arun couldn’t reply any satisfactory answer. At the dawn Arati came to Khaleed. She said that she has discovered her ‘Orao’ face. She asked him to take true image on his camera. Khaleed responded positively. But returning back to his room Khaleed found Arun was sitting there. Arun told him to turn an end of this journey into the unknown. Almost unwontedly Khaleed had to return. On the way back that dumb boy returned the cell phone to Khaleed. Returning back to Dhaka Khaleed miraculously discovered that there were some photographs of ‘Fagua’ festival and ‘Orao’ community in his cell phone which probably the dumb boy shoots. Khaleed made his first exhibition along with the dump boy’s photo. Now what will do Khaleed with those photos ? Will he go to that Village again ? What happen to Arun and Aroti ? Khaleed couldn’t find answer, so he decided to return the village and see the end line.
