• Short Summary

    Cute little baby ducklings meet a sad end as fully-grown and plucked dead ducks.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Ducks and Duckies from Diss."

    Diss, Norfolk.

    C/U of a large box of eggs; cut to C/U of a box being opened to show lots of little ducklings inside. Several more shots of cute, fluffy ducklings at various ages. Crowds of white ducks run across fields and swim about on a river. Ducks in crates are taken to a market. People look at them in cages before the auction. We then see a line of men plucking the feathers from the dead ducks, and lines of naked duck bodies, ready for cooking (no punches pulled here!).
