There are number of major languages which have official recognition and support from the Government of India, and Telugu, spoken in the central part of that country, is one of them. The story focuses on the nearly unbelievable suffering of Kamalakshi (Archana), a "bonded" woman in 1920s India. She has been sold by her family (for a humiliatingly tiny sum) to be the servant of a wealthy couple. Not only is she expected to pamper these awful people and do every chore imaginable, but she is required to be the sexual toy of the man of the house and anyone he "loans" her to - anywhere, and anytime of the day or night. When she becomes pregnant from all the couplings she endures, she hopes to keep the baby, but is forced (as a person with no rights to anything whatever) to have an abortion.
