This is the first film in Satyajit Ray's outstanding "Apu Trilogy." It takes place mostly in and around Apu's ancestral family home in a rural village in Bengal, India. Poor and struggling to feed his family, Apu's father decides to move his family to the big city of Benares to an uncertain future. After they leave we see a large snake crawl onto a brick porch and into the front door of the house. This could be meant to show that the home is reverting back to a dangerous natural state without them, but it's possible a snake in the house has some additional meaning in Bengal where the movie was made.
