Synopsis

Set in the turbulence of 1930s British Bangladesh, Chittagong is a true story of a 14-year-old boy, Jhunku, and of his journey to find where he belongs. For the first time in Indian history, the British army is defeated by a ragtag army of schoolboys and their teacher, Master Da. Called a traitor by his peers, and let down by a man he trusts, Jhunku impulsively joins the movement. As his world is turned upside down, Jhunku is forced to confront his self-doubts. The leaders of the movement are progressively caught or killed, but Jhunku battles against the odds to win a victory of his own.
