Role Description

Diya: (Lead) young boy who gets severely bullied in school. Mother is terminally ill (and is about to die in a few weeks). He's completely aware of his surroundings and the situation with his mother. His father is consumed by his own grief, and emotionally abandons his son. One day, when he is home alone, he finds a baby out by the dumpster and takes it inside and bonds with the little baby girl. With all the pain that is going on around, he sees the baby as his only reason to live; he has a purpose in life now, and that is to bring the baby to safety and make sure nothing bad happens to the infant.
