১৯৯০ সাল। হাসান নামের এক যুবক তার দুই সন্তান মার্ভ ও শেফা কে সাথে নিয়ে এক ছোট গাঁয়ে বাস করেন। তার স্কুল পড়ুয়া সন্তানেরা তার কাছে বহুদিন ধরে আবদার করছে তাদের মুরগির ছানা কিনে দেওয়ার জন্য। হাসান তাদের কিনে দিলেন কিন্তু দেখা দিল এক নতুন সমস্যা। তাদের এই হলুদ মুরগিছানা দু'টোর ভাগাভাগি নিয়ে বেধে যেত ঝগড়া। কোন মুরগি ছানাটি কার? সমাধানস্বরূপ, হাসান একটি মুরগিছানার ডানায় লাল রঙের দাগ কেটে দিলেন। লাল দাগ চিহ্নিত ছানাটি মার্ভের। সমস্যাটির সমাধান হলেও দিন যতই যাচ্ছিল, মার্ভের ছানাটি ততই অসুস্থ হচ্ছিল। একদিন মার্ভ যখন স্কুলে ছিল, তখন তার ছানাটি মারা যায়। শেফা ছানাটিকে কবর দিয়ে দেয় এবং চিন্তায় পড়ে যায় কিভাবে সে তার বোনকে এ দুঃখের সংবাদটি জানাবে।
