14-year-old Jaimy, the spoiled son of an industrialist who produces cooking pots and exports them to Germany, is thrown on the street after a quarrel with his father. Equipped only with a cooking pot he is supposed to sell, he wanders the streets of Dhaka and is confronted with his own helplessness and the reality and harshness of life. But he also learns a lot about the living conditions and ways of thinking of the ordinary people of the city.
