synopsis It is New Year’s Eve. Five prostitutes meet to celebrate the coming of the New Year. The evening suddenly loses its joyous atmosphere and turns into a horrid experience, in which they find themselves talking about the dark sides of their lives: abortions, unfulfilled dreams about true love and marriage, and dismal prospects for the future. Alka, who has just had her first experience in the red light district, is horrified with the hopelessness of such existence. Unable to cope with it, she decides to commit suicide.
