Nura is a street beggar. During the 1971 War of Liberation in Bangladesh his one leg became useless and paralyzed. The Razakars, anti-liberation forces attacked him and struck him causing injury and making him a crippled man. But as a father he is extra-ordinary. He begs in the street in rain and sunshine but he does so only to make his dream a reality-to educate his daughter who is pursuing her university studies. As an freedom fighter, he does not regret his poverty- rather he enjoys begging as he sings in his mother-tongue of Bangla. If he had not worked so hard to liberate his country from Pakistan, he would have had to speak and sing in Urdu. His daughter Swapna falls in love with Niloy, a rich boy from a well-to-do family, but his family cannot abide by their son marrying the daughter of a beggar.
