Somewhere in Asia.
But it could be everywhere all over the world.
The ten-year-old girl Salang is sold by her father to a brothel.
Just now an innocent and playful child, her childhood ends abruptly.
She sings: “Once oral: 10 dollars, once vaginal: 20 dollars, once anal: 30 dollars”
But she remembers the words of her mother: “Mom said every time, my eyes sparkle like a star-filled sky.”
She asks herself: “What’s the price of a star-filled sky?”
This play is a plea for humanity, it is a plea for the protection of the children and young from sexual abuse and exploitation, it is a plea for the protection of their vulnerable souls.
