Interior of a soup kitchen, showing women and children being served bowls of soup or some other food from large barrels. A couple of men are also present; they fill out papers or cards which are collected by one of the women. A close-up shot of a ration card, good for one hot lunch on November 8, 1923. The ration card is stamped with the logo of the "Internationale Arbeiter-hilfe" (International Workers Aid Association). More shots of women and chilren receiving rations of soup; one of the aid workers takes notes. A woman feeds soup to her baby. A close up shot of a sign that says "Only Communism can save us!" followed by shots of old people, then children, looking into the camera. A close up of an exterior sign reading, "28 feeding place [soup kitchen] of the International Worker's Aid Association". Another sign reads, "Speisestelle Frankreich der Internationalen Arbeiterhilfe". [Soup kitchen in France?]. Shot of smiling children, clutching soup pails and looking into the camera. They are then shown entering a building. Shot of older people, perhaps waiting in line for food?
