Original Language

ধর্মীয় শিক্ষাব্যবস্থা ও অনুশাসনের সাথে একজন কিশোরের মনন ও স্বপ্নের দ্বন্দ্বের গল্প এটি। সালাম ভালোবাসে ছবি আঁকতে। উগ্র ধর্মান্ধতার সাথে লড়াই করে তার নিজের স্বপ্নকে স্পর্শ করার গোপন লড়াইকে উপজীব্য করে নির্মিত হলেও ছবিটিতে চেষ্টা করা হয়েছে উগ্রবাদী ধ্যান-ধারনার বিপরীতে একটি সুন্দর ও সুস্থ জীবন দর্শনকে তুলে ধরতে। ছবিটি মূলত সালামের সুন্দর জীবন খুঁজে ফেরার গল্প।
