This film uses a folk song as musical introduction and then shows mullet fisherman setting nets at night. It shows scenes around Florida and a sequence of Seminoles in the Everglades. The script says, "The mullet has a long and distinguished history." Viewers see large scale net setting near a beach, processing and canning, point-of purchase and serving at home. Some young people have a cookout with mullet and we see it served at a cocktail party in a restaurant.
