At first, the demolition of a biography. Shortly before his death, Fejos tells his life story. His voice, the melody of his Hungarian-accented English, his humour and his ability to tell stories lead us through the short documentation. Then it becomes an ethno-drama. The film travels from Sweden to Siam and poetically and powerfully shows how much work it is for a young couple to produce a handful of rice.
