In Rajasthan's villages,many have lost their husbands to AIDS. After their deaths, the widows and children are forgotten and neglected. HIV/AIDS has not only destroyed their their families, it has intensified their poverty. Central and state government schemes for the poor could have been a safety net, but they are not available. The film attempts to bring out the issues of poverty and its link to the lack of access to services by positive women.
