She is raped by Reddy and then sent to a brothel owned by them. At the brothel, Lakshmi meets Swarna, a tough girl and Jyoti, who runs the brothel. Soon, Lakshmi turns to alcohol for support. But, there comes a ray of hope with Uma — a social worker who periodically brings relief to the girls in the form of sweets, medication, sympathy and love.
