Impoverished priest Harihar Ray, dreaming of a better life for himself and his family, leaves his rural Bengal village in search of work.
From the extras on the disk, the Mother "Sarbojaya Ray" - Karuna Bannerjee (as Karuna Bandopadhyay) and the younger "Durga" - Runki (Shampa) Banerjee (as Runki Bandopadhyay) are actual mother and daughter.
Those who came before have passed on. And I'm left behind. A penniless beggar. Not a cowrie to my name. Look, my purse is empty... Lord, the day is done and evening falls. Ferry me across to the other shore...
Although the film is set in early 20th Century rural India (a time in which public health campaigns presumably did not exist), when Apu and Durga are shown hiding in the fields waiting to catch a glimpse of the train, a vaccination mark is clearly visible on the right arm of Uma Das Gupta, who portrays Durga.
