    The film is a 20-minute documentary and is carried by interviews with three woodworkers and their instructor. The film, though it includes visuals, is centered on stories told by the woodworkers themselves; it was made with a non-visual audience in mind, so it could be accessible to both sighted and non-sighted filmgoers.
