“Sincerely Yours, Dhaka” is a wild ride through the streets of Bangladesh’s capital. A background actor who’ll do anything to be a star. Two young girls who are dying for a drink in a city where alcohol is illegal. A teenage gangster who’s drunk on power and a sound recordist who finds a dark secret. A bank scam sparks an attempted murder and a plumber adds fuel to a refugee crisis. Stolen cars, broken dreams, dysfunctional relationships. Ranging from bizarre, heartwarming to heartbreaking, the first ever anthology film made in Bangladesh takes us on a bittersweet journey through Dhaka City.
