But due to current pandemic situation, the festival authorities have announced to hold this event in a virtual way. "The screenplay has been written based on true story. On November 12, 1970, a devastating cyclone and tidal wave killed more than one million people in the coastal region. In this story, I have tried to bring up how a beautiful family is harmed and suffered pathetically due to a natural disaster," said Zafor Firoze.

This screenplay by Zafor Firoze will play a role in raising public awareness when the whole world agrees on a solution to climate change. The screenplay also won the Best Feature Screenplay Award at the Berlin International Art Film Festival this year. Zafor Firoze is currently doing his PhD in film in Malaysia.
