The film is a journey for rediscovering self-identity for director Shabman Ferdousi. Thirteen children are born in a hospital in Dhaka, Bangladesh, a country born out of nine months of war. Five among them are war children whose ties to the homeland would soon be severed forever. Filmmaker Shabnam Ferdousi was among the eight who had families. Her documentary 'Jonmo Sathi' is about her search for her 'birth-mates', who were in the same room as her at Holy Family Red Crescent Hospital.
