A young girl lives with her grandfather in a sugar cane plantation in the bogs of Brazil. Here she is kept naked as a slave for men to abuse. Women are worth nothing, even to the educated men. There is no hope for the girl in this oppressive social study, where the only man that is nice to her digs the latrines next to the house.
