Summary:
Edited film explores the importance of music-making in the life of a paper mill worker in rural Maine. The film demonstrates how the "Down East" fiddling style is influenced largely by local traditions and suggests that music is valued as an individual creative act and as a form of communication through which people sustain friendships.
