Sewage consisting of human waste is brought from Japanese cities in carts to remote villages. Raw sewage is then processed by men who spread and compact it, and treat it with a powder. A young child slips and falls into the edge of the sewage treatment pool and is rescued by a slightly older boy, who escorts the crying child in soiled clothing away from the pit. A man wears strapped-on long boards to mash the waste which is eventually to be used for farm fertilizer.
