Summary: A mute educational film portraying life in a typical Malay village of fishermen and rice-farmers.
Description: Brief titles introduce each sequence, but there is almost no comment, the film being left to speak for itself. The film includes general views of the village; domestic every-day life (cooking etc); a boy with a tame monkey gathering coconuts; ploughing, planting and harvesting in rice fields; fishermen with nets and boats; folding and packing dried rubber latex from villagers' own trees; children fishing, looking after cattle etc. Closing title "whether as fisherman or farmer, the Malay likes to be his own master."
