1969. A man is about to walk on the moon. One of the fancy dreams of humanity is about to become reality. We are in Bengal, India, in the hamlet of Gospeira lost in the middle of nowhere. Prostitutes live there in a large whorehouse. Rajani has promised Natabar, one of her old clients, to give him Lati, her young virgin daughter. She considers it is a rare opportunity that such powerful man shows interest in Lati: she will be able to stop prostitution and Lati will have a better life. Yet, Lati is wanting to escape such fate. She is a brilliant school girl and dreams to go to Calcutta to study with her school master. Not far from there, Nagen, who works as Nataban’s driver, has taken in, against his own will, an old couple abandoned by everyone. He tries to find a hospital for them, in vain. In the whorehouse, two prostitutes welcome a newcomer and help her to start her new life. In the same time, the cat of the hamlet considered as lost, finds his way back...

To be born daughter of a prostitute and fight for a dignified life...
