Description: A young girl named Lati's mother is a prostitute and lives in the suburban brothel where she works. Rajani plans to hand her daughter over to a lecherous elderly man, who will be a wealthy patron for the daughter and a shelter for the mother. But Lati sees the price to be too great for whatever material rewards might come from it. Her own desire in life is to go back to school and continue her education. She has a very close friend, named Shibu, son of the local washerman. Lati's endeavor to escape the situation in which she was born is neatly coincidental with the first trip to the Moon in 1969.
