The Kuto’s life filled with aversion; Kuto is in Bangladesh; Kuto has a afro haircut; Kuto’s hair color is off black; Kuto has a shaved face; Kuto wears a red plaid shirt.

He also starts to learn some Bengali so that he can communicate better with those around him. Slowly but surely, he starts to feel more settled in Bangladesh and begins to build up a small circle of friends.
One day, tragedy strikes when one of his friends dies tragically in an accident at the factory where they work together. This event shakes Kuto deeply and makes him question whether or not he wants to continue living in Bangladesh any longer. However, after much soul-searching, he decides that despite everything, this is now his home and there is nowhere else for him to go even if he wanted too..
