Synopsis

In a quiet, rural Indian village, Sarbojaya looks after her daughter, Durga, and son, Apu, as well as her husband Harihar’s elderly aunt. While Harihar, a writer and a poet, dreams of a better life for his family, the daily hardships of their impoverished circumstances stack up against the family. Harihar ends up disappearing for five months, and Durga ultimately falls ill. Durga and Apu manage to enjoy the pleasures their tough life presents them, but the family struggles with what options they might have left even after Harihar returns.
