Kristal is a street kid who later becomes a viral sensation for singing her own song dedicated to her mother but behind the online platform, reality appears. This inevitable reality is what Kristal now has to face.


পথশিশু ক্রিস্টাল হুট করেই হয়ে ওঠে অনলাইন জগতের পরিচিত মুখ। তার মা'কে নিয়ে নিজের লেখা ও তৈরি করা একটি গান গেয়ে সে উঠে যায় জনপ্রিয়তার তুঙ্গে। কিন্তু অনলাইন জগত ও মোবাইল স্ক্রিন এর পেছনে যে সত্যিকার বাস্তবতার জগত, এবার তার মুখোমুখি হয় ক্রিস্টাল।

Original Language

Si Kristal ay isang batang lansangan na naging viral sensation dahil sa pag-awit ng kanyang sariling gawang kanta para sa kanyang ina. Ngunit sa likod ng online screen, lilitaw ang katotohanan.
