A basket maker (Zsóka’s godfather) talks about his childhood in Arad, and his studies in the national school for basketry. He tells us about unemployment in the 30’s, which forced him to seek work in the textile industry of Budapest. Finally, he reveals how he returned to his “first love”, by founding a basketry union with some comrades, in which he worked until his retirement in 1969.

In the presence of Peter Nestler.
