Cannes winner Tareque Masud’s last film, Runway follows teenage Ruhul (Haque) who lives with his family in a small hut next to the runway of Dhaka international airport. His family struggle to make a living while he spends his days wandering under the shadow of the planes, aimless and frustrated in his futile efforts to find work. One day at a cyber-cafe he meets computer geek Arif (Ahsan) who introduces him to what seems to be an inspiring and new religious sect, but all is not what it seems.
