The story of Jalal begins as an abandoned baby rescued from the river. But the villagers are soon sorry that they did when misfortunes plague the town: Jalal is considered a curse and re-abandoned. Years later, Jalal, now 9, is living as the adopted son of a rich landowner. But once again he seems to bring bad luck, this time “causing” the man’s wife to be infertile. Ten years later Jalal is working for a gangster-cum-politician when the man’s wife dies in childbirth. Whose fault can it be now?



Bangladeshi filmmaker Abu Shahed Emon studied psychology at the University of Dhaka but also developed a love of cinema who he nurtured later as an exchange student at the University of Wisconsin and at RMIT University in Melbourne Australia. He previously directed several short films and documentaries shown in Bangladesh and abroad. JALAL’S STORY is his first feature.
