Synopsis: A young prostitute mother, Andrea, discovers her self worth after suffering in an elongated time of self hatred. Mother of a new born, Andrea spends her nights away from her baby and works under the crude treatment of a pimp. She is paid short and told to stay quiet through her pain as a sex worker. On her return home, she feels utterly defeated while her baby cries. But when Andrea’s neighbor, who is equally in a poor domestic situation, notices that Andrea’s baby is calm and quiet in Andrea’s arms, the self hatred takes a turn.
