Zawad, an admission examinee for the medical admission test, came from a middle-class family. Despite his best efforts, he could not get admission to a medical collage and was met with an unfortunate event. The story continues with Zawad and his family being shocked by the outcome. This story is primarily about the lives of all Bangladeshi students who have taken or will take admission exams during the university admission season.

Original Language

জাওয়াদ বাংলাদেশে অধ্যয়নরত বাকি আর দশটা শিক্ষার্থীদের মতোই ভর্তি পরীক্ষার্থী। তার পরিবারের ইচ্ছা সে ডাক্তার হবে। জাওয়াদের ভর্তি পরীক্ষায় তার বাবা মায়ের ইচ্ছা পূরণ করতে না পারা দিয়ে চলচ্চিত্রের কাহিনীর শুরু হয়। ধাপে ধাপে এগোতে থাকে পরবর্তী ঘটনাবলী। একদিকে পরিবারের সবার আশার বোঝা আর ওদিকে নিজের বিষণ্ণতা, জাওয়াদ যেন তলিয়ে যেতে থাকে এক অতল সাগরে।
