Dr. Tawhid is a pediatrician in Dhaka, Bangladesh. In 2017, he visited the Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar as a volunteer medic, where he met Osman, a 14-year-old Rohingya boy. As a pediatrician who had witnessed many tormented young souls, Tawhid was triggered to raise fund for Osman.

Tawhid and Osman stay in touch over the phone, and as time passes, Tawhid becomes Osman’s only portal to a better life outside the camp. However, Tawhid starts to worry about giving Osman a false dream.

Tawhid has promised Osman that he will fight for his future, but Tawhid cannot overlook the reality that these grim circumstances may not be changed by his own efforts. In a world that is inevitably built on inequalities and borders, how are they going to break the boundaries?
