One day, they sell water lilies to buy old bearings, make their own car and win the race. In the city, Habil discovers their father with his new family. One stormy night, they find their mother half-dead and rush her to the hospital in the forbidden car. Fearing their increased suffering, Habil keeps father’s reality a secret. Besides, Rokeya Prachi, the film also stars Raisul Islam Asad, Masud Aziz, Imran, Saki Farzana and others. l
