Content descriptions

General Note:
Lakshmi is a thirteen-year-old girl who lives with her family in a small village in Nepal. Though she is desperately poor, her life is full of simple pleasures, like playing hopscotch with her best friend from school and having her mother brush her hair by the light of an oil lamp. But when the harsh Himalayan monsoons wash away all the family's crops, Lakshmi's stepfather says she must leave home and take a job to support her family. He introduces her to a glamorous stranger who tells Lakshmi she will find her a job as a maid in the city. Glad to help, Lakshmi journeys to India, only to learn the unthinkable truth; she has been sold into prostitution. An old woman named Mumtaz rules the brothel with cruelty and cunning.
