From a far-flung village from Patuakhali, a coastal town of Bangladesh vulnerable to climate change, a young--married-- girl arrives in Dhaka. She is anxious-- will she find her husband, who fled the village due to crushing debt? And she had come all the way from the tiny, coastal town of Kalapara to the big city to find him and take him back. Her name is Shahida Begum, and little did little Shahida know back then that her name was going to be among leagues of true champions one day.
