Filem ini merupakan rekaman visual dari ‘kultur tani’ dan pengaruhnya pada masyarakat di berbagai wilayah di Thailand. Struktur liris dokumenter ini merefleksikan melodi dalam ‘nyanyian padi’, disusun dengan ragam harmoni orang-orang yang bernyanyi dalam suara-suara berbeda, tetapi saling berbagi perasaan yang sama. Filem ini merupakan yang ketiga dari tirologi, didahuli oleh Stories From The North dan Agrarian Utopia.

This is a visual record of rice culture and its influences on the people in different parts of Thailand.  The lyrical structure of this documentary film reflects the melodies in the songs of rice, crafted and  composed by the diverse harmonies of the people who may sing in different voices but who share  the same heart. This is the final movie in the rice trilogy that began with Stories From The North and Agrarian Utopia.
