Krishna (Shafiq Syed) sets out to earn Rs. 500 which he owes his mother and finds himself in the notorious red light area of Bombay. He has a crush on a young prostitute, Sola Saal (Chanda Sharma) with whom he attempts to elope but all in vain. Several incidents later he is caught by the police and sent to a juvenile home. He escapes from there and goes back to the streets doing his usual business but always nurturing the dream of going back home to his mother with Rs.500.
