The last of five films about ways of life in different parts of the world. Muria
The Muria live in a relatively isolated area of central India. Their way of life differs from the general Indian pattern in many respects.
One important difference is the independence of spirit encouraged in Muria girls and boys. They sleep separately from their parents in the ' ghotul a dormitory and meeting house for the young. As members of the ghotul, their dancing and singing display Muria culture at its most splendid.

Sometimes they rebel against their fate-in fact, their parents half expect them to. Narrator SNEH GUPTA
