Do, a young woman who was gang raped at the age of 12, polishes a pair of boots at Tambayan’s Drop-In Center. Assuming that of all of them are into prostitution, city residents frequently call many of Tambayan’s contacts "shine girls", an offensive term derived from motions made during the act of masturbation. Do, however, does not make money this way and instead, shines shoes to make a living.
