Hashim & Family

Hashim & Family

It is New Year’s Eve, 1960. Hashim has left behind his homeland and his bride, Munira, to seek his fortune in England. His cousin and only friend, Rofikul, introduces Hashim to life in Manchester – including Rofikul’s girlfriend, Helen. When Munira arrives, the group must learn what it is to be a family.

Ten years later, war breaks out in East Pakistan. The struggle for liberation and the emergence of Bangladesh affects the family in ways they could never have foreseen.

Spanning twenty years and two countries, Hashim & Family is the story of migration and belonging, and the bond of kinship, and is the debut of an extraordinary new talent.
