images.jpg Indian director Ritwik Ghatak (who died in poverty in 1976) creates a dramatic tale of a struggle to survive around Ishwar, a young man, and Sita, his sister who live in a refugee camp together with Abiram, an orphan. Years later, Abhiram and Sita elope to Calcutta as Ishwar opposes their marriage. When Abhiram dies in an accident, Sita is forced into prostitution. Meanwhile, Ishwar contemplates suicide but is disuaded from doing so by his friend Harprasad who persuades him to sample the life in Calcutta, culminating in a visit to a brothel. The devastated Sita discovers that her client is her brother and kills herself. At the end of the film, an aged Ishwar takes Sita‘s son by the hand to a new home by the river.

Das wechselvolle Schicksal eines Bengalen, der nach der gewaltsamen Teilung seines Landes 1948 wie viele andere seiner Landsleute nach Kalkutta flüchtet. Die Handlung des von Verzweiflung und Hoffnungslosigkeit geprägten Dramas durchläuft viele Jahre in jähen Sprüngen und melodramatischen Erschütterungen.
