The film unspools the story of Peter, a Dutch man who arrived in Bangladesh in 1973 to report on revolutionary left movements in the new country, and was eventually imprisoned in 1975 by a new military government. Accused of planning a secret leftist uprising, Peter was released after a year of campaigns by Dutch activists.

[We regret to inform that Peter Custers (1949-2015) passed away unexpectedly on September 4th. At the time of his demise, he was making plans to come to Lisbon to attend the premiere of the film.]
