বাংলা

একজন মা ও তার ডাউন সিনড্রোমে আক্রান্ত ছেলের লড়াইয়ের গল্প এটি। প্রত্যেকটি দিন এই মায়ের কাছে একেকটি যুদ্ধ। ছেলেকে নিয়ে কায়রোর এক অভিজাত শহরে আইসক্রিম উপভোগ করাও যেন তার কাছে পর্বত জয়ের শামিল। কিন্তু, মা হাল ছেড়ে দেওয়ার পাত্রী নন। চরম প্রতিকূলতার মাঝেও মা ও ছেলে তাদের নিজেদের মত করে আনন্দ খুঁজে পেতে সংকল্পবদ্ধ।
