A young Sri Lankan woman is fortunate enough to receive a scholarship to attend university in the hill-country city of Kandy. Fortunate, she believes, until her experience living among mid- and upper-class Kandyans serves reminds her of her family's impoverished state in a southern village. Unhappy in these new circumstances despite a promising future, Lakmini longs to help her parents and siblings. There seems to be no easy path until a chance encounter with a dissolute Kandyan presents her with the choice to showcase her womanhood and take one drastic step that will fly in the face of everything she has ever honored about her innocence and her culture.
