Ananya, 17 years old, has just given her exams for grade 8. She is one of the brightest students in her village and has won numerous competitions. Her mother who was a commercial sex worker passed away recently due to HIV. She has two older siblings; a brother and a sister. The sister is working in the red-light area of Mumbai and the brother stays in Mumbai with her. Her younger sister and brother live with Ananya in their village. Ananya is financially dependent on her aunt, who is also a commercial sex worker, and who wants to send Ananya into the sex trade. Ananya is adamant she does not want to follow her family and community traditional practice and she hopes to have the opportunity for a better life. She often breaks down while thinking of her mother who wanted her to continue with her education and avoid entering this practice.
