Summary

Amateur film-maker, and airline pilot, Captain William Armstrong records a trip to Marrakech. He films images of other White-European travellers taking tea in the garden of their hotel, of the city's walls, and of an elderly local man carving wood. There is also footage of the coastline, the sea and settlements taken during a flight to Rabat.
