Murder of Naivety. A girl leaves the countryside and runs away to the city. She leaves behind a story of perversion. In the city she meets an indigent man, and momentarily they share their misery. She cannot run for too long. A shadow from the past returns to horrify her, and who then gentles her heart. Hunger and necessity finally bend this already trampled spirit. Is there a light at the end of this tunnel?
