Living alone in a tenement above the railway, a grown Apu passes his days reading poetry, playing his wooden flute and looking for work. Although poor and without family, he remains hopeful about his future. After reuniting with a childhood friend, Apu marries the man's cousin. But marital bliss is short-lived, as a terrible tragedy awaits the newfound lovers. This is the third and final film in the renowned Apu trilogy from director Satyajit Ray.
