Women workers in a pit like a cellar digging & carrying baskets of dirt on their heads as they walk up a plank. Then a quick CU Mesil; Parliamentary Minister (very dark shot). Other shots of women carrying large baskets; many people walking along train tracks in between 2 cliffs.
More shots of women w/ various items carried on their heads; an incredible sense of balance - a pottery jar; a large box. Women filling baskets w/ grain.
