A night before his birthday, Farooq requests his mother to get him a new school bag. Though his mother initially talks him out of it and acts like she doesn’t know which bag he is talking about, after much persistence on his behalf, she scolds him for not being more responsible.

Finally, he threatens to not go to the school the next day if she doesn’t get him the bag.

As the narrative progresses, one gets to witness a heartbreaking change of events that leaves us numb. Beautifully picturised with amazing performances by both the child actor and Rasika Dugal, the film is directed by Dheeraj Jindal and is inspired by a true incident.
