বাংলা

রায়া এবং তার বন্ধুরা স্কুলে অতিরিক্ত দুষ্টুমি করে। একই সাথে রায়া তার নৈতিকতা ও বিশ্বাস সম্পর্কে অবগত হয়ে উঠে। সে নিজেকে তার পিতামাতার সাথে তুলনা করে। পৃথিবীকে আরো সুন্দর করে গড়ে তোলার জন্য সে তীব্র ইচ্ছাপোষণ করে। তবে এই বিশ্বব্রহ্মাণ্ড কি জাদুর মাধ্যমে বদলানো যাবে? নাকি বদলাতে হবে জবাবদিহিতার মুখোমুখি হয়ে?
