Director: Razibul Hossain & the Students of Media Studies and Journalism.
Bangladesh has been branded as a disaster prone country around the world. Natural disaster like tornado, cyclone, and flood were the main topic to discuss for Bangladesh.

They went to experience the most disaster prone communities of Bangladesh - "Mirzagonj" where 90% community people were affected by the Cyclone Aila and "Pathorghata" 100% people affected by the Cyclone Sidr. While on their journey, they meet resilience people who are not only survived nature's fury but also surmounted it. This interaction between students and the community people creates a dialog that motivates them to tales of awe, vulnerability, loss, agony, strength, faith, inspiration and unity.
