If a 'special child' is born to a well educated,high profile family with modern mentality (yet not so), then what kind of problems, hurdles, and social outlook is created regarding that child - is the main theme of the story. Amongst all the relations,the sweetest and most beautiful one is that between a mother and a child; but if any mother denies her motherly love, care and pampering, then that child faces too much of hurdles to grow up as a proper human being. The same is never very normal, nor expected at all, by anyone. This special child who has Progressive Lipodystrophy Syndrome as a rare genetic disorder, and certain cerebral disorders, somehow manages to get his name right in the headline of the newspaper... but too late - by that time, he had already reached an unknown shelter - full of warmth - a childless couple, who loves him as if he was their own child. This story ultimately reaches up to a tragic and twisted ending.
