A snapshot of life in a village in the Punjab - from the production of mustard oil to the shoeing of a bullock.

With intertitles that include such jewels as "they do a great deal of spinning," it's clear that this film was made to be shown to young audiences. From the repetition of the opening title sequence it would appear that the original film was later re-edited. (Robin Baker)
