|The original movie poster from Wikipedia|
The movie starts with a girl whose mother is dying. She needs money for her mom's prescriptions, and she just can't get it. So she decides to try to be a prostitute. However, she is not having any luck getting a guy to pick her up. So she tries to steal money from someone instead, but she gets caught and sentenced to a year in prison. She runs away and goes back to her mom, who has actually now died. She joins a circus troupe and lives for at least a little while away from the police. She meets a boy and they fall in love--despite her fighting it. They move back to her original city, and she lives in fear of the police for a long time. I won't spoil the end...but you should really watch it to find out if they get to stay together.
