Heuernte auf einer Hochalm im Gsiestal: Dengeln und Wetzen der Sense, Mähen, Wenden, Zusammenrechen; Eintragen des Heubündels auf dem Kopf. Kochen von Brennsuppe auf einer offenen Feuerstelle. Verhaltensweisen beim Gebet und beim gemeinsamen Essen.
Hay-harvesting on a high alpine pasture in the Gsies valley with all operations belonging to it: mowing the grass, sharpening and whetting the scythe, tedding and raking the hay, and carrying the hay into the log-cabin. Beside harvesting we also see the behaviour of the workers at meal, preparing the food and saying grace. The film points out the coordination of the works of the different members of the group. Some operations can hardly be carried out without assistance (e. g. the lifting of the hay charge to be carried in).
