The most stigmatized people in Sonagachi – Calcutta's red light district – are not the prostitutes, but their children. In the face of abject poverty, abuse, and despair, these kids have little possibility of escaping their mother's fate or for creating another type of life. Yet, these children of prostitutes embark on a transformational journey.
