The plot of the movie is very touching. It is the story of Krishna, Manju and other children living hand-to-mouth on the streets of Bombay. Sometimes they can get temporary jobs, but mostly they have to beg for money and keep out of the way of the police. The film depicts their life in the city of Mumbai and how these kids manage to raise themselves in such a grim situation.
