Summary: Concerning the arrival of natural products such as vegetables and live stock as well as human labour into a city from rural areas,this film explores the product-commodity-exchange value relationship.Representing in itself a variety of exchange value, money as capital destroys the natural specificity of people and things.In the process, the labourer is reduced to a mere commodity.
