The economic troubles of people who have been trying to make ends meet for their families have gotten harder and harder as the pandemic brought heavy inflation and a big economic downfall. The people who have small businesses near markets and work as daily wage workers have seen the darkest of their times, and months of lockdown meant months of no pay and months of starvation. To top it all, kids and family members get struck by covid19 or chronic illnesses like cancers or tumors, which is a financial and emotional crisis for middle-class people.
In times like this, kids with a pure heart and singular thoughts try to do something for their family members or loved ones. Such is the effort of a 10-year-old Syed Aziz selling bird food with his mother to raise money for his 12-year-old sister(Sakeena Begum), who has brain cancer and loves her so much. The young boy, who should be studying in school and focus on growing, works with his mom(Bilkes Begum), selling bird food from 6 am-8 am, and then studies at a local madrasa the rest of the day.
He believes that his sale will help him cover his sister. The boy cannot see his sister suffer and that the money at home does not suffice for all her treatment and thought of selling bird food with his mother. The mother of two is troubled and is seeking help from people to save her daughter's life from cancer. The boy and his mature thought process and his eternal love for his sister are quite heartwarming.
