Parents do the unthinkable to their newborn son, then a stranger sweeps in and changes everything.

Dima Kalekin, a child from Ukraine, will never know his real parents. They abandoned him the day he was born because he had a disease called hydrocephalus, also known as water on the brain. Dima ended up in an orphanage for disabled children. Fast forward to when he was four years-old and he still struggled. He could not walk or feed himself with a spoon. However, he was able to speak a handful of words. Dima seemed to be doing well, but that was all about to change.
