The exotic island of Bali is explored in this 1932 travelogue, with a particular emphasis on the stunning natural physical beauty of the native women. And if the custom happens to be that the women go topless, what can be done, other than keep the cameras rolling? A day in the life of Bali unfolds following the exploits of sisters Tagel and Grio. As Grio prepares for her wedding day, we are treated to a fascinating look at the culture, customs and music of this far-off land. While the tender age of the young ladies makes us uncomfortable today, this is a rare look at one of the guilty pleasures of a bygone era.
