She sends her son to a school. When her identity is revealed, other parents press the school to throw her son out. The school head is sympathetic but couldn't resist the presure. She decides to leave this place with her son, but finds her only money is stolen and gambled away by the pimp. In desparation, she throws a vase to the pimp and accidentally kills him.
