In a little known event of the 1930s British occupied South Asia, a handful of untrained teenage boys
and girls, led by a school teacher, handed the British their first military defeat and liberated a town from
the colonial yoke for the first time in the 20th century. Set against this backdrop, Chittagong is the story
of the youngest and the most unlikely participant – Jhunku Roy. A studious, diffident and frail 14 old
teenager Jhunku wouldn't even come out to play football, let alone pick up a gun. CHITTAGONG tells the
incredible story of how this boy becomes a revolutionary, and having joined the rebels, battles nagging
self-doubts and reluctance on one hand, and a formidable enemy on the other, to achieve an impossible
Chittagong is an uplifting action-drama, made more compelling by the fact that it is true.
