For the first time in her life, Bidhya, a meritorious young girl, does not top her class and loses a scholarship to study further in the nearest town. But Bidhya does not give up. She finds out that if a student’s writing has been published in a national magazine, there’s still a chance of winning money that will help her to study further. With help from her younger brother Basanta, Bidhya submits a poem to a national child magazine. Unbeknownst to her, Bidhya’s poem gets published in it. When Basanta gets to know of this news, he strives to find the magazine that he knows will get Bidhya the scholarship, and change their lives forever.
