বাংলা

একটি শিশু শরীরে পাতা নিয়ে জন্মগ্রহণ করে এবং তার মা তার আরোগ্যের প্রত্যাশা করে। কিন্তু স্কুলে অন্য শিশুরা তার প্রতি বৈষম্যমূলক আচরণ করলে শিশুটি বনে পালিয়ে যায়। কাতিঙ্গায় তার কৃষ্ণাঙ্গ সংস্কৃতি ও আদিবাসী সম্প্রদায়ের বিভিন্ন মায়াবী সত্তার সাথে দেখা হয় এবং সে আত্মজ্ঞান লাভের অভিযানে নেমে পড়ে। তার খোঁজ তাকে নিয়ে চলে ওসান্যিন অর্থাৎ পাতার ওরিসায়, যা বৃক্ষের শক্তি এবং পরিবেশ সংরক্ষণের প্রতীক।
