Transcarpathia travelogue (Hungarian Production). Bucolic scenery: stream, bridge, horse drawn cart. Cameraman in an open cart, filming as the cart rolls by [early form of tracking shot; he is using a hand-cranked camera]. Scene of a village, with wooden buildings, including huts with thatched roofs and a church with an onion dome. A group of women in shawls walks by, cut to a small procession of wagons bearing peasant men in traditional dress. Village square, where people appear to be gathering, perhaps for some sort of festivity. CU of a young girl in embroidered peasant shirt, petting a kitten. Women singing and doing embroidery, first outside, then inside a home. A sign post reads: "HOVERLA 17km; PICTROS 224km; KOROSMEZOE (with arrow pointing screen left); BALCATUL 19km; STOHOVEC 10km (with arrow pointing screen right)".
