Meeting of men in a rural village of Russia, during the hard times following world war I and the ensuing revolution and civil war. Closeup of local leader speaking to men of the village. Behind him hangs a homemade flag with hammer and sicle and various slogans written on it. Camera pans back and forth from the speaker to the audience during the film, showing closeups of some of the village men as they listen intently. An intervening slate, in cyrillic, seems to allude to the U.S. and a working relationship with the village (possibly related to efforts of the U.S. American Relief Administration, in Russia, during this period). At the conclusion of the talk, the villagers are obviously delighted with what they heard. Some of the men express their exuberance by lifting the speaker, bodily, up and down several times.
