There are so many touching stories with tragic endings from movies and in real life. So many that sometimes it becomes normal news to hear, but how it changes the life of the concern people is another story.
Julie is an only child of her single mother who is working in Egypt as caregiver to raise her. Julie witnesses the hardship and sacrifices her mother did to provide her a good life. Not actually, a luxurious life, but a better life compared to those homeless or street children with irresponsible parents. Soon as she finished her studies, she promised that itis time for her to repay her mother’s love and care. Luckily, she got a job as a teacher in a government school, but her small salary is not enough to fulfill her dreams. She decided to apply for a work overseas and got a job as a nursery teacher in gulf country. She started her dreams by helping her mother to build a new house that her mother already started 5 years ago.
