This is a visual record of rice culture and its influences on the people in different parts of Thailand. The lyrical structure of this documentary film reflects the melodies in the songs of rice, crafted and composed by the diverse harmonies of the people who may sing in different voices but who share the same heart.
This is the final movie in the rice trilogy that began with STORIES FROM THE NORTH and AGRARIAN UTOPIA.
