This documentary is based on the struggle and hardship the street based sex workers of Dhaka, Bangladesh have to face in a daily basis. Their earning from per customer is of about Taka 100, which is USD $1.27 only. Neither do they have a sustainable income source nor a secure shelter or access to essential facilities. The circumstances being created under growing economic crisis is forcing them to engage in prostitution. Hence, every day is a struggle for survival for them.
