Mumbai is full of tragic stories of girls who have been prised from their families and sold into an abusive life of slavery. Yet for Loki, life as a domestic servant is a priceless social net.
Like all of the domestic servants working in Mumbai, Loki’s past is marred by tragedy: sold at a very young age for a couple of rupees and sexually exploited, Loki has no understanding of human rights.
