Ruhul lives with his family in a small hut next to the runway of an international airport. His mother struggles to support the family by selling milk from a cow bought with a micro credit loan. His sister works long hours in a factory stitching cloths for export. Over a month has passed since Ruhul’s father left for a job in the Middle East, but no one has heard from him since. A madrasa dropout, Ruhul spends his days wandering under the shadows of planes, aimless and frustrated in his futile efforts to find work. One day at his uncle’s cyber café he meets Arif, a computer savvy young man who exudes confidence and sense on purpose. The world Arif introduces to him seems inspiring and new, but soon Ruhul’s life spirals into a nefarious netherworld of intolerance, violence and ultimately death… Inspired by the actual events “Runway” is a searing look at the contradictions and complexities of contemporary life.
