On the edge of Bangladesh, between mountains and water, stands a post-office, the only sign of civilization. It has a notorious reputation: its employees disappear. Two men, in love with each other, work there.

In what seems to be a dream-like post office, lost in time and space, set on the edge of water surrounded by mountains, lies a secret nobody knows. People who work here, also disappear. “The Last Post Office” tells an allegorical fable of two men who work and share their everyday life in a post office, two men who are also in love with each other.

Aung Rakhine is one of the aspiring indigenous filmmakers who are, despite of various barriers, fighting hard to come out with their own stories. My Bicycle is Aung’s first feature film, and the first feature film to be made in an indigenous language in Bangladesh.
